Recently the space formerly filled by the longstanding La Tropicana Market opened under new ownership and a new name, albeit serving up similar Mexican and Cuban favorites. El Tropical (5001 Lindenwood Avenue; 314-833-3513) debuted on August 29 featuring tacos, taquitos, Cuban sandwiches and more. Owner Daime Gomez cooks up some Cuban dishes from his native country while chef Lorena Munoz brings a hefty offering of Mexican fare to the table.
