Havana serves up Cuban-American cuisine and fresh mojitos in a setting replete with all the charm of an Old World bistro. The menu combines the distinctly Cuban with pan-Latin flavors for a taste exploration that uproots taste-buds and sends them careening on a pinball-style joy ride. Start off with a pitcher of the house mojito, swirled with fresh mint, lime, and sugar in Bacardi Limon rum ($31, or $8 for a glass), and a couple orders of citrusy, seafood-infused ceviche ($9.95). Save room, though, because entrees such as the apricot-chipotle pork chops, marinated with apricot chipotle sauce and served with jalapeno hash browns and steamed broccoli ($18.95), demand serious abdominal real estate. The vegetarian chiles en nogada fools meat-thirsty mandibles with the toothsome texture of two poblano peppers stuffed with mushrooms, peppers, onions, and cheese ($14.95). With a couple more mojitos, caipirinhas, and margaritas, plus an order of Cuban coconut-rum flan ($4.95), gracious guests will be primed for a twilight Clark Street trot on a chestnut mare.

Though they can make such café staples as cappuccinos and chai lattes, Cafecito’s baristas specialize in Cuban coffee—classics such as the café con leche, cortadito, and their signature Cuban espresso, whose murky blackness is cut with a teaspoon of sugar. Those earthy aromas complement those of the eatery’s gourmet pressed sandwiches, which incorporate all-natural ingredients and the same recipes followed in generations of Cuban kitchens. Rather than just stick to tradition, however, owner Philip Ghantous and his culinary team also put their own spin on the form, creating sandwiches stuffed with Carribbean-inspired jerk chicken or unusual combinations of sweet plantains, guava, and peanut butter. Each meat they use is marinated in a tangy homemade mojo before being doused in signature sauces such as habanero-lime mayo or their famous chimichurri. The garlicky topping requires a full week for its flavors to integrate, according to the Chicago Reader, which heralded Cafecito as one of 2008’s best new restaurants. Acclaim has remained strong since then—The Huffington Post and Time Out Chicago included the restaurant on their lists of best Cuban sandwiches in Chicago, the latter in its #1 spot.
