D nightly. In this massive two-story setting reminiscent of a Cuban hacienda courtyard, chef/partner Guillermo Pernot offers a magnificent menu that includes classic Cuban recipes as well as bold adaptations. His dishes are all about sensations: contrasts of spice and sweet, the outside crunch of a croquette giving way to tender beef and smooth potato. The modern offerings are brilliant: El Chinito Cubano wraps a classic Cuban sandwich in a spring roll, and camarones con cana offers juicy pan-seared shrimp in a spicy-sweet mango barbecue glaze and served with a deep fried pepper stuffed with sweet potato, quinoa and Mascarpone cheese. $$$ Credit cards: All
