Celestine's

I followed up on Celestines on my search for a Cubano sandwich.
The restaurant is done well, various seating areas were created in a clever way, using walls, open windows, art, music and colorful paint to create a wonderful atmosphere.
I had a Mint Julep and a Cubano sandwich, my daughter had a Shrimp sandwich.
Both of us liked the bread the sandwiches were made on, however the filling of each was so skimpy, we counted 6 medium size shrimp on my daughter's sandwich.
I had to look for the roast pork on the Cubano, I commented about the skimpyness to the friendly waitress.
It closely resembled the Cubano sandwiches I had in New Orleans for a lot less money and with a lot less substance.
She told me that she is used to comments such as mine and agrees with me.
I will go back to Celestine's for the atmosphere, to have a drink and maybe an appetizer.
My plan for the future is to make my own Cubanos, using carnitas and getting some good bread at New Romas.Unless someone else has another idea.
