Cuban Crocodile in Long Beach closes
Cuban Crocodile in Long Beach, which reopened at its East Park Avenue address about a month after being damaged by superstorm Sandy, has now shut down permanently.
Chef-owner Marivi Wolfe attributes the closing to post-Sandy landlord issues. She added that she is scouting a new location.
Cuban Crocodile earned a two-star rating last May for such dishes as flaky beef empanadas, succulent crisp-skinned pernil, or roasted pork, and a respectfully wrought classic Cuban sandwich.
