Favela Cubana
The sounds and flavors of Brazil and Cuba unite at this recent Greenwich Village addition. Diners can perch on repurposed conga drums at the bar, and sip from an extensive menu of caipirinhas and mojitos—one version swaps orange and basil for the traditional lime and mint combination. Dig into binational dishes such as ropa vieja (braised beef with olives, onions and peppers). A small stage in the back hosts live musicians playing in styles such as forró and pagode.

This is one of those places on Laguardia St that I always walk by and say "Oh this place is so close to the park, we should go here." Finally went! We got the chorizo croquettes, the cod fish cakes and the ropa vieja (pulled skirt steak) and everything was good! The combo of Brazilian and Cuban flavors is really fun and they have a pretty substantial outdoor seating area if you want to grab a quick bite after the park.
