The true spirit of Havana in the heart of Greenwich Village (complete with a lifetime supply of mojito flavors).Given Cuba's extensive menu of classic fare from Havana, including more variations on the mojito than all our heads together might have dreamed up, you could easily spend every day & night here and never try the same thing twice. Nor sit in the same spot: everything on the menu can be enjoyed upstairs in the main, front room (rich with folk art paintings and photographs of Cuban street scenes), the adjacent, linen-canopied La Terraza or downstairs in the lounge-like Hemingway Hideaway. No matter where you settle in, what you'll have on your plate will amaze you; each dish is made from scratch and served in heaping, somebody-say-hallelujah portions. Whether you get a traditional Cuban sandwich for lunch (the Sandwich Cubano or Pan con Bistec are the way to go here) or something meatier for dinner, there's no chance you'll walk away unsatisfied. This is doubly true if you opt for Cuba's signature Ropa Vieja, AKA your new favorite thing. Served with moros (black beans and rice cooked together) and tender yucca, this classic dish shows up like an aromatic fever dream, and tastes better than anything ever has a right to.
