Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Restaurant Review: The décor evokes the glamour of Old Havana (circa 1940), pulsing with excitement, and the menu features the tastes of Cuba and other Latin regions. All of it is robust and satisfying with the big flavors of the sunny Caribbean. Look for unusual offerings such as chicharrones: crisp, marinated chicken, skirt steak, Berkshire pork belly and Cortez chorizo served with plantain tostones. Even the vegetarian dishes sizzle; try the paella de la huerta with grilled vegetables (broccoli, zucchini, cauliflower, leeks, eggplant, wild mushrooms, artichokes, roasted peppers) and saffron long grain rice. There are ceviches and tapas if you want to eat lighter. Rums outnumber wines, but you’ll find some good vintages that suit the cuisine. The dessert list features tres leches de caramel, a vanilla sponge cake soaked in three dulce de leche-flavored milks.
