This is a nice little neighborhood Cuban restaurant in Bed-Stuy, and it’s pretty ideal for a casual weeknight dinner. Although there’s nothing wrong with getting dinner here on a Saturday. You could even bring a date. Most things cost less than $20, the space is attractive, and there are a lot of options on the menu. You should really order meat here (maybe a Cuban sandwich or some pork with rice and beans), but if you’re vegetarian or a vegan there are actually a few good options.
