Hosts Mario Zarate and Julio Quevedo want all their guests to feel the Amor Cubano (Cuban love) in everything at this Spanish Harlem restaurant which has been serving traditional Cuban food since 2007. The white laundry hanging from lines strung across exposed brick walls, the thatched roof over the bar, and the distinctly bright art throughout add to the ambiance created by the authentic live Cuban music, which is what keeps many patrons coming back. That, and classically executed dishes like the ropa vieja, shredded skirt steak made in garlic sauce. The restaurant has a full bar and features eight different mojitos. Reservations are recommended.
