Ravi DeRossi (Mayahuel) introduces a rum-punch bar and Cuban small-plates restaurant in a pastel-colored space upstairs from Carteles, his Cuban sandwich shop. The punches—like A Moveable Feast (Mount Gay Eclipse silver rum, Dolin Blanc vermouth, lime, dry French cider, bitters and nutmeg)—are all created by Charlotte Voisey (the Eldridge). Chef Luis Gonzalez, meanwhile, has created a Cuban-inspired menu that includes dishes like pork ribs in habanero-and-guava sauce.
