Paloma Cafe Latin and Caribbean Restaurant Slides Into Cafe Henri’s Old Spot

The new restaurant comes from the folks behind Revelator Coffee

Josh Brasted

The corner spot that once housed Cafe Henri and Booty’s Street Food has a new tenant — Paloma. The folks from Southern third-wave coffee chain Revelator (with a location in the Warehouse District) will open the new 60-seat, Latin and Caribbean-inspired restaurant by the end of the year with two former Compère Lapin chefs helming the kitchen, reports Todd Price.

The chefs, Danny Alas (originally from Venezuela) and Justin Rodriguez (whose family is from the Dominican Republic), also run the Latin street food pop-up, Melao.

The group is planning a “super-affordable” menu of empanadas, churros, ceviche, and soups. Additionally, expect full beverage service, a “profound” coffee and tea program, along with pastries, breakfast, lunch, dinner, and brunch.

Birmingham-based Revelator Coffee has six shops in Alabama, eight in Georgia, two in Massachusetts, one in South Carolina, and one in the New Orleans Warehouse District.

Eater has reached out to Revelator for more details.
