Ravi DeRossi's sit-down Cuban restaurant in the Cienfuegos complex is modeled after a public square, and does indeed contain a fountain. Per DeRossi, the figure spouting water is "the blessed virgin of El Cobre of Santiago, Cuba, the lover of Chango, the god of drunkenness and debauchery." Appropriate for a cocktail list that focuses on rum! In addition to a number of classics (the Floridita, the Cloak & Dagger) and the intriguing-sounding Papa Double (a frozen daiquiri with grapefruit juice and maraschino), there are shaken and rocks options, and, as expected in these tiki-heady days, some sweeter-leaning swizzles. Food is in the same classic-Cuban vein as the offerings at next-door sandwich shop Carteles and the upstairs Cocteleria, with some additional snacks like tamales and crab gratin, larger plates including rack of lamb and grilled snapper, and a selection of seviches.
