On November 10, 2010, three cousins — Nedal Ahmad, Otto Othman and Nizar Ahmad — opened Pincho Factory at 9860 SW 40th Street with only $6.27 to their names. The local fast-casual concept proved successful, and the trio went on to open a second store at Coral Gables in 2010 as well as an outpost inside American Airlines Arena just this year. With another location opening soon in Hialeah and other franchise projects in the works, there’s no stopping these guys.
The Local Craft Food & Drink isn’t the same place it was a year ago. If you haven’t visited the Coral Gables American gastropub recently, it’s time you did. Why? Because Chef Phillip Bryant is in charge.
