La Bodeguita De Mima
The gist: The Ole Restaurant Group strikes again with this wildly popular Cuban concept that features a huge rum selection, a cigar bar, and authentic Cuban cuisine.
The food: The menu features traditional Cuban dishes like Arroz con Pollo a la Chorerra, a Cuban comfort food dish consisting of big chunks of chicken and yellow rice simmered with beer, sofrito, peas, green olives, and roasted peppers. There’s a substantial apps menu (shrimp ceviche or pork tamales, anyone?), entrees, sandwiches, sides and, of course, desserts such as flan and tres leches cake.
