THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Casa Cubana Restaurant Review

: Background music combines with chatter and hum in the various dining rooms separated by open columned walls. An art gallery of Cuban prints and paintings surround patrons seated in twosomes or larger boisterous groups. Remolacha, a vivid red beet vodka cocktail with lemon, ginger, cilantro and pistachio, lubricates while taste buds revel in the Habana cocktail appetizer, a sundae glass spilling over with tiger prawns, cucumber, mango, avocado and tomato relish. Whether you choose the pork lechon asado, served with black rice, orange, fennel and garlic gastrique, or the ropa vieja, a beef brisket ragoût plated with Cuban sweet potato purée and chimichurri, save room for a slice of refreshing guava cheesecake or a warm, fragrant banana bread pudding cake. The smart, compact menu offers something just right for everyone: meat, fish, fowl, soup, salads, wine and beer, and cocktails evoking 1940s Cuba.
