Stopped in and just made it in time for happy hour so we grabbed a pitcher of the Coquito on a recommendation from a friend. I'm not sure what goes into it but it was amazing. They say it's made grandma's secret recipe so I wasn't able to coax from the bartender what was in it except a couple different rums. You'll have to try it yourself.

First let me say the food was spectacular.  They started with these innovative empanadas (free) which we followed with the arepas served with shredded beef.  We then had two of the typical Cuban entrees - the chicken (pollo al mojo de ajo) and the pork (pernil).  Spectacular food.  The drink at the end was a particularly nice touch.  We also loved the bar area with the shutters in the front.

A couple of improvements we would like to see: fix the lighting (the fans make it feel like a 1970s dance floor with strobe lights), add more pictures like the Cuban scene on the North wall, add some plants (stop at the Chelsea florist down the street) to soften the look, create drink specials, and ditch the bento box (overly pretentious and not needed). 

Improve your marketing - get more people in.  Get a Yelp listing.  Get the early folks who are in the door to come back with their friends. 

This place is a real winner.  Make sure it sticks around!
