“The Estefans are cultural icons and valued corporate partners in our community, so we are thrilled to see the expansion of their brand at MIA,” said Miami-Dade Aviation Director Emilio T. González. “Estefan Kitchen Express adds even more diversity to our North Terminal Marketplace, where we already feature cuisine from popular local vendors such as Fig and Fennel, My Ceviche, Half Moon Empanadas, and soon, Chefs of the Caribbean.”

While the Estefans are famous worldwide for Grammy awards in music, they also big in the restaurant field with Larios on the Beach, on Miami Beach’s Ocean Drive and Bongos Cuban Café restaurants in MIA’s south terminal, downtown Miami, Hollywood and Orlando. They plan to open Estefan Kitchen in Miami’s Design District this fall.

The Estefans also own the Cardozo Hotel, on Miami Beach and Costa d’Este Resort & Spa in Vero Beach.
