New York, NY 10014
(212) 366-1640

Havana Ice Tea 8.5 /10 Delish, clean, refreshing
Mango Mojito 8.5/10
Tap Water 9/10 (what did they put in the water??)

Albondigas – home made cuban meatballs cooked in habanera sauce
expected hot, spicy, long, slow burn,
disappointed. meatball was good (one step up from above average)
7.3/10

Tostonos o Maduros – fried yellow plantains.
very tatsty
8.2/10

Fricase de Pollo ( i hate it when waiters have no clue what they are serving.
i clearly asked if it’s whole pieces of chicken,
he said they were chunks, i asked if he was certain, he said yes.
i guess not certain enough)
– whole quarter pieces with the bone with potatoes and carrorts, braised in a traditional cuban tomato and garlic red sauce.
6.6/10
not that great. wouldn’t recommend it

Arroz con Pollo
classic cuban dish, yellow rice with peas, chorizo and green olives toped with bone in chicken.
8.5/10
the rice was perfectly cooked – chicken was delishous,
not really an olive fan – although the taste of the olives did complement the rice

Decor 8.9/10 inside was really nice, and in the middle of our dinner started playing live music
Service 5/10 (they gave wrong description of food, see fricase de pollo above)
Value 5/10 – pricey

Conclusion: what does it say about a place if the water is the highest rated item? I don’t really know,
but recommend this restaurant. 2 thumbs and 1 big toe up.
