Super Pan to close, possibly reopen in larger space

Chef Hector Santiago and wife Leslie close Super Pan but have plans for future relocation.

Chef Hector Santiago and wife Leslie close Super Pan but have plans for future relocation.

Super Pan Latino Sandwich Shop, the lunch-only spot that sits just behind Pura Vida Tapas on Blue Ridge Avenue, announced that it plans to close its doors as of today.

Despite the high praise the restaurant received from diners and critics alike, it didn’t receive enough business to sustain it. According to the press release, “the foot traffic in the area is not enough to support the high labor, high food cost concept in its current location.”

If you’re already missing the Medio Dia, Chef Hector’s popular take on a Cuban sandwich, don’t despair. Owners Hector and Leslie Santiago, who also own Pura Vida, hope to reopen Super Pan in a new location with space for a full Latin bakery and coffee shop and, of course, the sandwiches for which Super Pan is known. The plan is to have a place that will be open for coffee, breakfast and lunch, with a possible dinner option. The Santiagos are currently looking for investors before beginning the project.

I live just down the street from this place, and I really love Chef Hector’s cooking, but I’m also not going to pay $12 for a sandwich the size of a Krystal, no matter how good it tastes.

What a good idea to move it and expand the hours. We wanted to go more often but the limited hours made it hard.

If his new place will be bigger, will the sandwiches also be bigger?
