Cuban restaurant replaces Fuddruckers

Dos Cubanos Restaurant has opened in Paramus.

Dos Cubanos, a moderately priced Cuban restaurant, opened about two weeks ago on Route 4 east in Paramus -- in the space where Fuddruckers operated for many years.

The Web site says Dos Cubanos is the largest Cuban restaurant in Bergen County.

The most expensive entree on the menu is paella, a dish from Spain ($16.99).

A whole fried red snapper ($15.99) comes with white rice, black beans and sweet plantains.

As listed on the takeout menu, a traditional Cuban sandwich -- which is made in a heated press or plancha -- is missing sliced pickles and mustard ($8.99).

The restaurant has a liquor license.

The restaurant's sign is free standing.

Dos Cubanos, 282 Route 4 east, Paramus; 201-343-4108.

Web site: Two Cubans

New ramen spot

A new Japanese restaurant, Ramen Setagaya, opened about three weeks ago on Main Street, near Center Avenue, in Fort Lee.

The restaurant -- a BYO -- is open 7 days (201-585-0739). It is a branch of a Manhattan restaurant of the same name.

Ramen Setagaya is around the corner from Batten Ramen, a no-frills, cash-only BYO on Center Avenue that has been serving Japanese noodle soup and other dishes for many years.

Korean cafe closes

Manna, a small Korean restaurant and cafe on Teaneck Road, near Forest Avenue, in Teaneck, appears to have gone out of business.


  1. Dos cubanos doesnt have a liquor license. The most expensive item on the menu is the churrasco at 19.99 and the red snapper is 18.99.

  2. If it doesn't have a liquor license, why does the Web site offer sangria and mojitos? Are they non-alcoholic?

    Maybe, Dos Cubanos raised prices since I went there for a menu in June. Is the food any good?
