'Love letter to Cuba': Owners of popular restaurant open supper club in Little Havana



When chefs Justin Sherrer and Lisetty Llampalla opened the Little Havana gem Doce Provisions in 2016, the restaurant was called “a gift to its neighborhood” by the Miami Herald.

A comfortable, relaxed space just north of Calle Ocho, Doce Provisions continues to serve contemporary Cuban cuisine in an unpretentious way, gaining praise from such sources as Bon Appétit, which earlier this year urged readers to try the restaurant in its cover story on the growing Miami food scene. Doce Provisions also earned a nod from the Michelin Guide, which called the spot “a backyard oasis like no other.”

Now Sherrer and Llampalla are widening their scope with the new Social 27 Supper Club, which they call their “love letter” to the Cuba of the 1940s and 1950s, where supper clubs were all the rage.

With Doce Provisions, which also has a location inside the Shoma Bazaar food hall in Doral, Sherrer and Llampalla focused on food. At Social 27, now open on Eighth Street, their focus doesn’t so much stray as expand, encompassing cuisine but also music, classic Cuban cocktails and the cultural ties that bring a community together.

“The concept of Social 27 Supper Club is to create a space where people can come together to enjoy the best of Cuban cuisine while experiencing the infectious energy of Miami,” Sherrer said. “We want to provide not just a meal but a memorable experience that resonated with both locals and visitors.”
