This Cuban cocina offers a few cholesterol-conscious variations on the rice-and-beans theme, like vegetarian alternatives to Cuban pressed-pork sandwiches and beef empanadas. There's also a build-your-own paella bar, where finicky diners can customize their orders with add-ins like artichoke hearts and pineapple. In the fun, unpretentious cafeteria-like room, youngsters can slurp nonalcoholic guava and blackberry batidas (smoothies) with their rice and beans, while adults can take advantage of the sangria and mojito bar; and desserts (churros with a trio of dipping sauces) for both young and old.
