Naming their newest restaurant Estefan Kitchen made too much sense.

For years, when diners wanted to eat upscale Cuban food at Larios on the Beach, they would say, “Let’s go eat at Gloria Estefan’s place,” her husband, Emilio Estefan Jr. recalls.

It’ll be a lot easier to remember the name now.

Miami’s power couple unveiled the first of their restaurants to wear the Estefan Kitchen badge Friday, Estefan Kitchen Express in Miami International Airport’s D concourse. The quick-stop restaurant builds on Gloria Estefan’s grandmother’s family recipes.
