Le Cubain at 81 Ludlow recently updated its image. The dark-green marquee has been painted over, and will likely be replaced by the new name sometime soon – Sebastian LC. Not much personality there. Menus are also updated.
We spoke to one employee of the corner restaurant, who was on a cigarette break, and he explained that branding was the intention behind the name change. The owner, Sebastian, reportedly has plans to open numerous restaurants with the same Sebastian name.
