For nearly 25 years, La Bamba Island Cuisine has been sending doners on flight-free Caribbean excursions through his dishes inspired by the kitchens of Cuba, Jamaica, and Mexico. Owner-chef Chris oven-roasts shredded pork for menu items as varied as Cuban sandwiches with ham and pickles to the popular St. Thomas burrito with guacamole and pico de gallo. A unique wine and a seasoning blend flavors the Panama shrimp with bell peppers dish, and the lobster tacos combined the grilled oceanic delicacy with pico de gallo and guacamole. Whether taking in the island cuisine from indoors or the al-fresco patio, a refreshing sangria, beer, or margarita pairs well with just about any dish, whether by the sip or by the funnel full.

The folks behind Baracoa Lounge describe Cuban food as "Spanish food with soul." But there's another key ingredient that makes the lounge a memorable venue: romance. After starting with 6-oz pours of wines from around the globe, visitors can share bites from small plates and write upside-down love notes on the tablecloth beneath twinkling Edison bulbs. The tapas-style offerings include ceviche, crispy croquettes, and fried plantains, or "tostones," that add a dash of sweetness to supper. Larger entrees are also available, from savory ropa vieja to the signature Cubano sandwich.
