THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mojitos Rum Bar & Grill Restaurant Review

: The kitchen at Mojitos turns out a combination of Caribbean and Creole-influenced cooking. Jerk chicken and jalapeño grits on the same menu? Check. In addition, small plates feature everything from crab cakes to empanadas. Hearty appetites will be satisfied with bigger portions of filet mignon, pan-seared scallops or a slow-cooked, tender citrus-marinated pork belly. While there is no formal wine list, Mojitos prides itself on its rum selection, highlighting 40-plus distinctive varieties. Somehow they all seem to pair well with gooey butter cake for dessert, drizzled with caramel syrup. Along with the jazz, live music on the patio includes local bands sharing the calendar with a weekly Sunday reggae night and Latin night on Fridays. The music is great, but it’s very loud. Ask for a seat inside if you plan to converse during dinner.
