THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED NAMES Xiomara Restaurant Review

: After sixteen years under Xiomara Ardolina's proprietorship, this classy Cuban restaurant changed hands in April 2007. New owners Phil and Carmen Castenada kept the Cuban concept and the clean, contemporary space, and hired executive chef Robert Humphrey. Humphrey has already revised the menu, and there will be ongoing changes to dinner, wine and dessert. Starters currently include a classic Cuban black bean soup and blue corn-crusted calamari with tomato and cilantro aïolis. Entrées are highlighted by wild New Zealand snapper with a fava bean salad, citrus mojo and green papaya-mango slaw; filet mignon with butternut squash hash and roasted chili-pearl onion demi-glaze; and Creole Cuban fried rice with rock shrimp, pork and ham. To drink, there are still mojitos, made using sugar cane juice, squeezed fresh at the bar. By mid-August 2007, the restaurant will be called Mojitos on Raymond.
