Chicago’s 5411 Empanadas opening at Coral Gables

5411 (named after the international dialing code for Buenos Aires, Argentina) started in 2009, when the three founders decided they wanted to bring a piece of their country to Chicago. It started small, very small, but a good product and word-of-mouth made our little dream grow from just deliveries to one of the most successful food trucks in the country. In 2012 we opened ourfirst permanent location in Clark St. and we’ve been lucky enough to keep growing since then. Now they are going to open a Miami Location at Coral Gables. Here is more information about 5411 empanadas :

 

According to New Times :

“Located on the corner of Galiano Street and Miracle Mile in Coral Gables, 5411 specializes in baked gourmet Argentine-style empanadas. They come in 15 flavors, including Malbec beef, bacon dates and goat cheese, spinach and cheese, caramelized onion and Parmesan cheese, thyme and blue cheese, ratatouille, and banana and Nutella. Though empanadas aren’t hard to find in Miami, as compared to Chicago, Andres Arlia, cofounder and owner of 5411, is confident the store will succeed. “I lived in Miami for about five years, so I’ve been exposed to the empanadas here,” he says. “Many times they’re just one item on a much larger menu, but with us, they are the main focus.” At the eatery, empanadas are baked, not fried, and made to order, which Arlia believes sets 5411 apart. We only bake our empanadas, instead of frying, because it holds the flavor of the dough better. And instead of making them in the morning and leaving them in a heat-box like many places, we bake them right after you order.” written by Clarissa Buch.

 

According to Eater :

“Chicago-based empanada store, is opening its first location outside of Chicago in none other than the unofficial empanada capital of the U.S.: Miami. The store is setting up shop in Coral Gables next month on the corner of Galliano and Miracle Mile. It will sell 15 different flavors of the stuffed dough pockets — baked, not fried — ranging from bacon and date to spinach and cheese to Nutella and banana. It will also offer up beer and coffee.” written by Olee Fowler.
