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.

Cozy and different. Cienfuegos makes for a fun happy hour spot with 1/2 off punch bowls until 8 pm. Recommend for small groups of 2-4.
On Sundays they have 1/2 price punch bowls. I used to do the Sunday funday more often here but stopped going to venture out & see other spots.
came back the other night with a friend. To my surprise, they only have select
punch bowls for 1/2 off, not on all of the punch bowls like they used to.
That made me sad because the featured punches for 1/2 were not the good ones.
Ambiance still the same. The amazingly crazy
painkiller cocktail is still on the menu too.
The apps here are so good. You actually feel healthy eating them.
Service is a bit sluggish, but nonetheless, this place remains a staple for me.
