Calle Dão

Like its Spanish-Mandarin name—an ode to owner Marco Britti's (Favela Cubana) study of Cuba's Chinatown—this midtown eatery fuses Asian and Central American cultures, churning out Peking-style chicken, bone-marrow fried rice and ginger-glazed duck empanadas.

Cuban and Asian fusion. Not the most common, but it worked! We made it just in time for happy hour (sat down at 6:55pm) with a large party of 12 but the service was great and they definitely took care of us. They had a couple different versions of mojitos which were fantastic and reminded me of a tropical getaway. The starters were great. Must haves are the ox tail croquettes and the spring rolls. The yucca fries had me most excited, but they were a little bland and lacked any true flavors. The main dishes everyone in my party enjoyed. I had the lechon which is a pork dish that was so tender, you didn't have to cut it with a knife. It was served over quinoa and it was awesome. I had a bite of the skirt steak, which had a killer spice and explosion of flavors. Those that had the cornish game hen, were also very impressed. I would consider coming back but the prices are a tad high for what you get. Overall, the experience was great.
