"The Hurt Locker" actor Anthony Mackie is all set to open a Cuban restaurant in New York.

The 34-year-old star's new restaurant is in the early stages of planning, reported Contactmusic. "I'm opening a Cuban bistro in Williamsburg... We're going to have the best mojitos outside of Cuba, we're going to take raw sugarcane, crush it down and make mojitos.

We're gonna have gangster-grilled chicken with fresh mango, beans and rice," Mackie said on a TV show. The actor first ventured into the food and beverage industry in 2011 when he opened NoBar Bkny in Crown Heights.

"You know this acting thing, it's a dangerous hustle, so I never know when my time is up, so I got to stack my chips. I might have to go back to the streets!," he added.
