    This is the best cuban restaurant I've ever been to. La ropa vieja estaba de show y el tres leches riquisimo.

    Havana Alma de Cuba feels like the most authentic NYC Cuban restaurant. They host live bands Fri/Sat nights. Sometimes, they have a person rolling Dominican cigars. Coconut Flan and Churros are great!

    The churrasco skirt steak, empanadas, and flan de coco were on point. If you're looking for a vegetarian entree, try the vegetable paella.

    Always passed by this spot and it looked appealing. It was quite louder than expected. My Cosmo was syrupy, chuletas had a spongy texture, and there was an odd unpleasant smell in the place. No Bueno
