El Cristo Restaurant Serves Up Calle Ocho

EL CRISTO from Miami New Times on Vimeo .

Though Little Havana is full of restaurants, yesterday's Calle Ocho festival saw many of Eighth Street's eateries closed for the party. El Cristo was wide open for business -- including a vendor tent out in front of the establishment serving roast chicken, fried pork, and skewered meats. El Cristo also offered a traditional Central American salad that the restaurant's representative above described as "not even Cuban."

Still, El Cristo kept it real, kept it moving, and kept its patrons happy. Here's a map of El Cristo's location.

Check it out; even Google maps recognizes SW Eighth Street as Calle Ocho.
