Versailles Restaurant Review

: When locals only have time to take out-of-town visitors to one Cuban restaurant, this landmark spot is usually the choice, due to its history, its position as Latin power players’ primo informal gathering place (which guarantees stimulating people-watching into the wee hours every night), and its supremely silly décor. The restaurant hits home more accurately with its traditional fare. One example is the wondrous ropa vieja, tender shreds of garlic-enriched beef simmered with onion and bell pepper in a tomato sauce, served with soupy black beans. When lechon asado is a special (generally Friday-Sunday), it’s a tasty version, especially when diners are lucky enough to hit the place when the pork roast is right out of the oven. And for those seeking a late-night bite, the Versailles special sandwich (a Cubano, with added chorizo) always satisfies.
