Agozar Restaurant and Lounge

From crisp croquetas de jamon to beef-filled empanaditas, the Cuban-style tapas at Agozar Restaurant and Lounge come flavored with the same rich, Caribbean spices that fill the childhood memories of its co-owners, siblings Gerardo Perez and Diana Mastrodimos.

“We’re from a Cuban family, [with] a Cuban grandma," Perez said. "We lived in Miami for some time, so we had traditional Cuban food almost every day. Our dad also worked in Cuban restaurants in NYC, like Victor’s Cafe, so we had that upbringing."

But in recent years, the brother-and-sister team has expanded their menu beyond the classics they remember from childhood. Today, they also serve "Nuevo-Cubano" dishes that draw on influences from Spain, Mexico, and even China, reflecting the full cultural diversity of modern Cuban cuisine.

Dishes to Discover

Those familiar with Cuban cuisine will easily recognize classic dishes at Agozar, including pressed cubaniche sandwiches, shredded ropa vieja, and citrus-marinated lechon. But there are dishes here that may surprise even the most seasoned palate. A few highlights:

  • Crisp calamari sweetened by Dominican honey
  • Vegetarian wild-mushroom croquettes with piquillo pepper sauce
  • Ginger-glazed "Chino-Cubano" salmon with vegetable fried rice
  • Chorizo with caramelized onions in a sangria glaze

In the Press

  • New York Magazine recommends the tapas-like small plates, which are "vibrant with spices and emboldened by fresh ingredients."
  • The New York Times notes the spot's "lengthy list of flavored mojitos," which draw in muddled-drink enthusiasts and also people who love to read lengthy lists.
