Habana Restaurant & Bar
Hidden from South Congress by thatched roofs and palm leaves, Habana feels like a secret, tucked-away piece of the Caribbean. The restaurant makes some solid Cuban and Caribbean food—including one of our favorite Cuban sandwiches in town—as well as great tropic-inspired cocktails like mojitos and margaritas. The patio is full of cabanas that are perfect for feeling like you’re on vacation, and there’s even a cigar menu if you want to get fully immersed in the Cuban daydream.
