Listen to live son (salsa-style Cuban music) bands while sipping on mojitos at this Old Havana–inspired supper club. Chef Carl Ruiz executes a menu of Latin dishes, like arroz con pollo, ropa vieja (twice-cooked shredded flank steak with Creole sauce) and albondigas (meatballs). The sultry, 80-seat space sports crystal chandeliers, a black-and-white checkered floor and light blue Louis XVI upholstered chairs.

The restaurant is stunningly beautiful and the service was impeccable. The food needs some help though. The chef needs to lighten up on the salt, My husband had to ditch the Ropa Vielleja because the high salt content rendered it inedible. The high salt content could put one into heart failure, In making the food nouveau cubano, the chef managed to lose tthe authentic flavor of pernil.. It had more of an Asian flavor linked to a sesoning like star anise. The coconut shrimp was beautifully presented, as was the guyaba in pastry.
