THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Cuban Revolution Restaurant Review: Within the confined space of this eatery, the up-tempo Cuban music will make you want to get up and dance. Luckily, the food is good enough to keep you in your seat. The traditional and original Cuban fare includes specialty grilled sandwiches with quirky names like The Bay of Pigs, The JFK and The Fidel---the latter the traditional pork and Swiss cheese version. The vernacular fits with the restaurant's "revolutionary" décor, which features posters of John Lennon and Che Guevara and TVs playing documentaries on Cuban leader Fidel Castro's rise to power. Employees wear shirts emblazoned with "Viva la Revolucion!" Politics aside, the fresh, made-to-order food includes the Santiago, a wrap with rice, mushrooms, green peppers, onions, cheddar and chicken marinated with sweet and spicy sauces. The place is also vegetarian-friendly, and many of the wraps are available without meat. Desserts range from the classic flan to a chocolate-drizzled coconut sorbet and a warm, rich Havana-style chocolate cake. Service can be a little haphazard, but the staff is friendly and accommodating. The specialty drink selection is small but noteworthy, especially the mojitos and Cuban coffees. Cuban Revolution is the rare place where you can still order an egg cream---a milk, chocolate syrup and seltzer drink exported from New York to Havana in the 1950s.
