New Latin Food Concept Taking Penguin Drive-In Spot in Plaza Midwood
Location was most recently inhabited by NC Red
Frank Scibelli’s FS Food Group will take over the former Penguin Drive-In spot, most recently inhabited by NC Red, and open a concept called Calle Sol Latin Café and Cevicheria this spring. The Plaza Midwood spot will serve traditional Latin food “based on the Cuban and Peruvian neighborhoods in Miami, Tampa, and Orlando,” a release says.
The restaurant will be led by executive chef Paul Cruz, a longtime member of FS Food Group, and it will serve Cuban sandwiches and standards like vaca frita and croquetas.
