If the Broadway show you just saw was less than stellar, head to Victor’s Café for an everyone-turns-up-eventually crowd and a meal worthy of applause. The kitschy space is like a set—straw fans, celeb photos and tropical foliage. Sample the authentic Cuban crackers and dense bread on your table, then dig in to the bartolito, a sweet plantain stuffed with pork hash and served in a black-bean sauce. Entrées are huge and tasty: The spicy seafood casserole is packed with shrimp, scallops, snapper and clams; the vaca frita is panfried tender shredded beef. If you’ve still got your wits about you (the mojitos are potent), have the piña y helado, vanilla ice cream topped with pineapple chunks broiled in dark rum.
