Danzon CubanoDanzon Cubano
Cuban | Grand Rapids, Grand Rapids

Danzón Cubano is a tribute to the Cuban people, their history, their culture, and their perseverance in the face of trials. Our restaurant was inspired by Carlos Hidalgo, a gentleman born in Havana, Cuba. His father, Julio Hidalgo, a businessman and well-known big game fisherman, was a close friend of Ernest Hemingway—they fished together in Cuba, Key West and the Bahamas. Carlos came to the United States when he was 15 years-old as part of Operation Peter Pan—”Operación Pedro Pan”—an under the radar program that from 1960 to 1962 brought more than 14,000 unaccompanied Cuban children to the USA as exiles from the Communist regime of Fidel Castro.More
