Chefs Enrique Olvera (of NYC's white-hot Cosme and Mexico City's Pujol, the #20 World's Best Restaurant) and Andoni Luis Aduriz (whose San Sebastian restaurant Mugaritz is ranked #6) will join forces to open a restaurant in an unlikely locale: Cuba. Aduriz confirms to Reuters that the duo plan to expand to the communist country, and want to create a project that "aspires to be on a hypothetical list of the most fun restaurants in the world." Last week, Olvera Tweeted the restaurant would be located in Havana, although Yahoo notes the "pair are still at the early stages, with no planned start-up date." Updates as they become available.
