Cienfuegos evokes the bayside Cuban city for which it's named with bright colors, traditional recipes, and an abundance of rum. An array of small plates, such as ham croquettes and octopus ceviche with coconut milk, complement sandwiches such as the classic Cubanitos with roasted pork, sliced ham, pickles, mustard, and two melted cheeses. Flights of rum introduce diners to new favorites, and cocktails showcase the spirit with such creations as the Dark & Stormy, which adds zest with house-made ginger syrup and lime. The dining room walls, awash in emerald green paint, offset the collection of white leather furniture, whose sleek lines span from armchairs to tufted banquettes. Brass candlesticks and wall-mounted shelves introduce other pops of color, such as fuchsia candles, glass objets d'art, and the end of a rainbow.
