Cubana Café (CLOSED)

Restaurants, Cuban Soho

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Bright blue outside, pink and yellow inside, this cheap and cheery Mexi-Cuban café (owned by Jean-Claude Iacovelli of Jean Claude and Soho Steak) is a kaleidoscope of aquamarine tiles, colorful soft-drink bottles and plastic tablecloths in tropical-fruit patterns. The starters are the crowd-pleasers: They offer cheese-sprinkled corn on the cob and eight kinds of quesadillas, including a terrific chicken, avocado and tomato version slathered with chipotle sauce. The entrées—like moist chunks of roasted pork, tangy picadillo (ground beef stewed with olives, yuca and raisins) and cumin-tinged black beans—should make diners glad there’s no embargo on recipes.
