$20 for $40 Worth of Cuban Cuisine and Drinks
The dinner menu includes entrees such as ropa vieja—shredded skirt steak braised with tomatoes, peppers, onions, and garlic sauce and served in a plantain basket ($20); paella marinera with mussels, clams, calamari, bay scallops, shrimp, and lobster tail ($25); and the classic sandwich cubano with roast pork, ham, swiss cheese, pickles, and mustard ($15). Lunch is a prix fixe menu with an appetizer, entree, and dessert ($15.95/person).
Named after a classic Cuban love song, Zagat-rated Guantanamera celebrates the culture and traditions of Old Havana, dishing up authentic cuisine, complimentary hand-rolled cigars, and live music. Homemade dishes such as pressed roast-pork sandwiches and yellow rice with shrimp share menu real estate with elegant entrees of braised oxtails with mashed plantains. Bartenders sweeten mojitos with sugar cane or prolonged exposure to greeting cards, and they pour more than 30 types of aged rum sourced from South America and the Caribbean.
On Friday and Saturday nights, cigar expert Juan de la Cruz enlists traditional tools to hand-roll Dominican tobacco inside thick, complimentary cigars, and patrons can hone their salsa, rumba, and cha-cha moves to live music Tuesday–Sunday at around 9 p.m. Inside the eatery, exposed-brick walls encroach on vibrant, hand-painted murals depicting idyllic Cuban scenes, such as dancers, musicians, and city streets. A parade of candles casts a gentle glow upon crisp white tablecloths, and rattan-covered ceiling fans make balloons lament their helium innards.
