The chefs at Terrazza Restaurant meld Cuban, Spanish, Portuguese, and Latin American cuisine into house-specialty fusion fare. Diners launch an opening volley against hunger with the Terrazza house salad, a blend of arugula, cucumber, and garbanzos in balsamic vinaigrette. Carve a mark into the ropa vieja, slow-braised skirt steak with bell peppers, onions, and peas, or savor the pescado al ajillo, fillet of sole sautéed in a white-wine and garlic sauce and mounted on the wall to sing holiday jingles at the press of a button. Patrons converse in the earth-toned dining area over the grilled chicken breast of the pollo a la plancha, or sit amidst low, blue lighting at the bar sipping 1 of 17 mojitos (not included in the price of this Groupon). Guests cap off the meal by forking through caramel-laden flan made with custard as rich as the man who invented money.

Sconces cast a soft glow on modern, wooden tabletops. Green glass tiles glint in the light of fluted hanging lamps. Tea candles flicker next to plush, low lounge seating. The lighting inside Cubanu creates a romantic atmosphere before dates even dig into its menu of American-influenced Cuban dishes, such as empanadas stuffed with goat cheese and spinach. Patrons can also drink glasses of signature house-made sangria, or cap off long nights of filing joint tax returns by munching on late-night tapas dishes served on Friday and Saturday.

The chefs at Mojito Grill immerse the intimate dining area with the savory scents of classic Cuban fare. Employing a decades-old cooking method, they use traditional la caja china roasting boxes to prepare hearty cuts of pork, steak, poultry, and fish. These special ovens heat to extreme temperatures, but keep the flames from ever touching the succulent slabs. This seals in flavor and juices while creating a crispy exterior. Marinated churrasco skirt steak, grilled wild salmon in a guava glaze, and roasted pork highlight the menu alongside traditional Cuban sandwiches. Delectable flavors can be relished with a Cuban coffee and bookended by a Cuban flan.

It's been nearly two decades since Hard Grove Cafe opened, and in that time, the Cuban-themed restaurant has evolved into a place where locals gather to see art exhibits and dance to live music. Of course, the biggest draw is still the authentic Cuban cuisine. Diners can dig into seafood mofongo?roasted chicken glazed with guava-infused barbecue sauce?and tangy ropa vieja, amid other exotic dishes. Vegetarian-friendly alternatives are available, along with sandwiches and burgers for diners who are afraid to use forks. Bartenders whip up refreshing mojitos and cosmos for accompaniment. Sundays bring an extensive brunch with optional bottomless bloody marys and mimosas.

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.”
