Time Out says

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

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.
