Havana Central Restaurant Review:

With its terra-cotta and dark wood color scheme, palm trees and ceiling fans, Havana Central is a pleasant reminder of a time when writers, movie stars and politicos used to mingle over rum and cigars. There's even a replica of a narrow, long table used to roll cigars parallel to the handsome wood bar. The menu is billed as authentic and certainly sounds it with plenty of tapas, empanadas, and spiced meats. Pressed Cuban sandwiches of slow-roast pork, cheese and avocado make for an especially tasty lunch when paired with sides of fried plantains and sweet potato fries. If you've saved room for dessert, the Latin Donut Sticks, dusted in cinnamon and sugar and served with either chocolate or dulce de leche dipping sauce, is a must.
