THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cuban Corner Cafe Restaurant Review

: The Cuban Corner Café is about as close as most diners will ever get to Havana. Jorge Manan presides over the boxy, low-key eatery. He does all the standards: Cuban sandwiches, empanadas, croquetas, fried chicken, beans and rice and tres leche cake. His empanadas ooze a fine, mildly-seasoned filling with every bite and his black beans, seasoned with garlic and olive oil, are topnotch. Cuban coffees are as potent and sweet as those sipped at any Havana Vieja coffee shop. Manan has live music on weekend nights and the place shimmies and sways with the sounds of salsa.
