Sala’o Cuban Bar and Pescadería
Time Out says
Owners Eliesteban Mena and Oscar Rodriguez—who also run the nearby Old Havana Cuban Bar and Cocina—channeled famous writer Ernest Hemingway when creating their latest Calle Ocho venture, Sala’o Cuban Bar and Pescadería. Named after a character in Hemingway’s classic novel The Old Man and the Sea, Sala’o has the look and feel of a cozy-yet-opulent 1940s living room, complete with marble accents, dark wood finishes and crystal chandeliers. A famous fan of Cuba and the Florida Keys himself, Hemingway would no doubt appreciate Sala’o’s menu consisting of local, daily catch fish dishes, east coast oysters, home-style Caribbean seafood, classic Cuban cocktails and live music performed from a raised wooden stage.
