Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Restaurant Review:

Though the décor is a façade of reconstructed balconies, terra cotta-tiled rooftops and mysterious doorways, the food concept by consulting chef Guillermo Pernot, introducing Spanish and Nuevo Latino specialties such as paella, is quite authentic. Included in the mix are Cuban dishes such as arroz con pollo; malanga fritters; ropa vieja (shredded brisket stew); and shrimp mojo. Even the tres leches cake is well executed. A $45 tasting menu is a good deal, offering tastes of “the forbidden island,” well-sized portions that hit on all the menu highlights, from the empanada of the house to the grilled skirt steak and the vanilla flan. Hang out late on weekends and take in the Ricky Ricardo-style floor show.
