THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Tito Puente's Restaurant Review

: This City Island restaurant, co founded by late Latin jazz great Tito Puente, offers Caribbean fare in a vibrant atmosphere, with live music on weekends. Fresh avocado and octopus salad is a good appetizer choice. Seafood paella, enchiladas and the Three Amigos (filet mignon, breast of chicken and shrimp served in sherry sauce with fresh mushroom) are among the entrées. A variety of Cuban sandwiches are also available. The dessert menu features tres leches, sorbets and an in-demand flan.
