Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Restaurant Review

: The décor evokes the glamour of Old Havana (circa 1940), pulsing with excitement; the menu is filled with fusion dishes that deliver the big flavors of Latin cuisine. Choose from modern items such as plato gaucho for two, which is a Cuban mixed grill of spice-rubbed New York strip steak, skirt steak, jumbo shrimp, herb-marinated chicken breasts and Spanish artisan chorizo. Red hot onion rings and a trio of sauces accompany. Or, turn to the classics such as paella de mariscos made with shrimp, clams, mussels, mahi mahi filet, squid and baby octopus. The rice is saffron "Bomba" --- a tasty short grain variety. Rums outnumber wines, but you’ll find some good vintages that suit the cuisine. There are only a few desserts, such as the warm banana and chocolate chip bread pudding made with Cuba Libre’s spiced rum and roasted pineapple.
