Nuevos Latinos

Three new restaurants celebrate the flavors of Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico.

  1. 1. Cafe Fuego

    9 St. Marks Pl., nr. Third Ave.; 212-677-7300

    The owners are French-Canadian, but the chef is Cuban and so’s the food, from the archetypical pork sandwich to ropa vieja with rice and beans.

  2. 2. 809 Sangria Bar & Grill

    112 Dyckman St., nr. Nagle Ave.; 212-304-3800

    You’re so close to the action at this ingeniously designed dining bar with its cutout nooks, they should give you an apron.

  3. 3. Sofrito

    400 E. 57th St., nr. First Ave.; 212-754-5999

    Jimmy Rodriguez has rehabbed his old Jimmy’s Downtown, lowering the prices and showcasing Puerto Rican home cooking. The pernil is Flintstonian, the waitresses buxom, and the clientele Mets-heavy.
