Cuban cooking finds its Zen at Asia de Cuba. The menu is a careful combination of Asian inflections and Cuban flavor, a concept most successful in seafood dishes like the calamari salad with banana, cashews and orange sesame dressing. Beef dumplings are steamed with coconut rice for island flavor, while traditional Cuban entrées like roast pork nod to the East with their pairing with bok choy. The Philippe Starck–designed bi-level restaurant, a sea of white with subtle hints of amber and orange, features a balcony-like lounge and dining area overlooking a giant communal table downstairs.
