If Sarussi Subs are the rings of Miami’s metaphorical tree, they can tell you a pretty accurate story about the city. The first one started as an Italian restaurant in 1964 and was later bought by a Cuban immigrant who added Cuban dishes to the menu. The restaurant invented a unique version of a Cuban sandwich by taking what it had available: a pizza oven, mozzarella, and sweet Italian bread. Eventually, Sarussi stopped serving Italian food altogether. Now, there are three locations—but the one on Bird Road has a Nicaraguan owner who (in keeping with tradition) is putting their own spin on the menu with a fritanga burrito and other Nicaraguan inventions.
