At Mojito Cuban Cuisine, chefs parade platters of Caribbean classics and tropical cocktails through a rustic, airy lounge. At the rough-hewn wooden bar, bartenders shake up the eatery’s namesake cocktail, a mojito crafted from a recipe indigenous to Havana’s famed La Bodeguita del Medio. Brick walls, exposed ceiling beams and faded blue hues lend Mojito a vibe that New York magazine describes as “scenester-friendly and warmly inviting.”

Citing its solar panels, bike-powered blender, and rainwater collection system, The New York Times dubs Habana Outpost “a sort of Rube Goldberg experiment for the hemp-and-composting set.” However, Habana Outpost is not a science fair project—it’s an eco-friendly restaurant, best known for its crisp and succulent Cuban sandwich. The toasted baguette stuffed with pork, ham, Swiss cheese and pickle was named one of New York’s top sandwiches by Refinery 29, but it’s not the only reason diners flock to the colorful eatery. Other house specialties, such as grilled corn with cotija cheese and chili powder or fried chicken and waffles on a stick, add to the menu’s slate of eclectic, exotic, and eco-friendly dishes. Just by eating there, diners get a taste of the green lifestyle as they sit on recycled furniture, sip from plastic cups made from corn, and recycle and compost their leftovers.
