Havana Central Times Square
Midtown West
This formal Times Square offshoot of the fast-food original in Union Square takes the basic precepts of its forerunner into swankier digs. Solid, reasonably priced renditions of Cuban classics—roast pork, ropa vieja—are whisked to your table in enormous portions with the usual heaps of rice and beans. But it’s best to veer toward less traditional offerings, like a Cuban sandwich stuffed into a crisp empanada and sweet-sticky ribs with ginger and mango. Faux palms and repro posters channel Hemingway’s Havana, as do retro cocktails like the original daiquiri poured over ice. The food may not be worth its own special trip, but as a pretheater option Havana Central makes sense.

I love this place! My friend and I went here for lunch and really enjoyed it. First of all, they have $12.95 lunch plates which was the deciding factor of us checking out the place.You get a main dish and two sides.I got the arroz con pollo with black beans and plantains and my friend got arroz con camarones with salad and plantains.Everything was so flavorful and the presentation was spectacular. We also had sangria which was dressed up with a little plastic lady.The service was great, food came out super quick.I’ll definitely be visiting again for dinner so I can check out the live music.
