Restaurant Review: Havana Alma de Cuba

Details: Located at 94 Christopher St, New York, NY 10014. Official site is http://havananyc.com/.

Havana Alma de Cuba is a Cuban Restaurant in the West Village.

The staff was friendly.

There was a nice outdoor space where we ate. It was temperate so it was comfortable to sit there.

Prices were average. Probably around $30 per person.

The food was Cuban; it included marinated meats, plantains, rice, beans, etc., standard Latino fare. We ordered the Ropa Vieja “La Bodeguita” (shredded skirt steak braised in tomato salsa criolla, served with mashed plantains and rice and beans), the Vaca Frita (shredded skirt steak sauteed with onions, peppers, scallions, and garlic, served with steam yuca with garlic mojo and guacamole), and the Tres Leches (layered sponge cake with whipped cream, meringue, and I think mangoes). It was all very tasty, although I think I would have liked the Churrasco (skirt steak with chimichurri sauce and brussels sprouts) more.

Score: 7/10 Nice place.
