Cousins Oliver Rivera and Juan Gomez had worked with Aron Watman for several years in his bars and restaurants across NYC. When Juan and Oliver shared their idea for CENA, Aron jumped on board and together, the three of them opened CENA in July of 2019.
CENA translates to dinner in Spanish. The menu is carefully curated to combine Juan and Oliver's Mexican family recipes as well as modern takes on older favorites. CENA offers vegan and vegetarian options as well as a kids menu and treats.
