Lincoln Road Mall’s busy sidewalk cafe scene fairly sizzles at Havana 1957, a Cuban restaurant that brings the vibrance of a popular Havana cantina to the streets of South Beach. Sample a classic cocktail at the richly appointed rum bar where the house signature mojito quenches the thirst even as it enhances your confidence. Sweeten the deal with pineapple, watermelon or guava flavors or have the bartender lead you through a tasting of the clear, dark, spiced and golden rums that make up the restaurant’s curated collection.
Once fortified at the bar, the kitchen’s special roast chicken in Cuban gravy and the slow roasted pork leg marinated in Cuban mojo are deeply satisfying. Served with rich black beans and sweet plantains, most entrees capture the hearty traditions of old school Cuban cooking. While a full meal is infinitely filling, be sure to leave room for the chef’s tres leches cake, a sweet treat that comprises rum soaked yellow cake topped with cinnamon, vanilla and mixed cream. Havana 1957 brings the best of Cuba to the heart of South Beach.
