Havana New York
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Don’t be fooled by the fancy digs. The dark Spanish ceramic floors are shiny and the huge paintings of pre-Castro tropics look great on the exposed-brick walls. But this is pretty much a Cuban lunch counter dressed in its Sunday best: From the ropa vieja and the smoky red beans to the never-changing daily specials listed in both Spanish and English, the only distinction is that here you actually have a little room to stretch out and relax. Trust the specials—Thursday’s is vaca frita, which is not “fried cow” (as your high-school Spanish might suggest), but rather tender chunks of beef marinated in citrus sauce. And don’t miss the coconut flan, which could convert even the most dedicated custard-haters.
