Mojitos Rum Bar & Grill Restaurant Review: The sound of live jazz emanates from the lush courtyard at Mojitos, with its umbrella-covered tables and misters (machines that emit a cool mist). The kitchen turns out a combination of Caribbean and Creole-influenced cooking. Jerk chicken and fried green tomatoes on the same menu? Check. In addition, the small-plates menu features everything from crawfish fritters to pork picadillo (an irresistible pork and black bean dish under deep-fried corn shells with chipotle cheese). Hearty appetites will be satisfied with bigger portions of crawfish pasta, a Jamaican pork chop or lobster mac ‘n’ cheese. While there is no formal wine list, Mojitos prides itself on its rum selection, featuring 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 salsa night and Latin night on Fridays.
