$100 for $200 Worth of Catered Cuban Cuisine

The catering menu celebrates the rich heritage of Cuba with meals customized to feed the smallest gatherings or large events such as weddings. Empanadas (from $35 for 14 pieces) come in a choice of fillings, such as chicken sofrito or spinach with goat cheese. Pressed Cuban sandwiches, such as the classic Cuban with roast pork, ham, swiss cheese, and pickles (any six for $62; nine for $95), are ideal for feeding a group at a lunch meeting. Traditional Cuban cuisine also fills the entree menu with the hand-pulled marinated steak of ropa vieja (from $74 for five–seven people) and mango-glazed grilled salmon (from $96 for five–seven people). Havana Central can also provide dessert and beverages.

Havana Central

In 2002, entrepreneur Jeremy Merrin teamed with fellow restaurant mogul Arlene Spiegel and head chef Stanley Licairac to establish Havana Central, a family-friendly enterprise based on lively Latin music and the rich flavors of Cuban cuisine. The food of Cuba draws from disparate influences across the globe⎯Spanish, French, African, Chinese, and indigenous cultures⎯manifesting into tender skirt-steak ropa vieja, empanadas stuffed with savory meats and goat cheese, and salmon, chicken, and shrimp marinated in tangy citrus juices.

Though the restaurant's leafy palms and tropical cocktails hint at the freewheeling good times of 1950s Havana, the staff pairs their joie de vivre with social responsibility, specifically by donating to local charities and taking on numerous green initiatives. As guests sip mojitos and sangria and sup upon slow-roasted meats and chicken sofrito, a lineup of live entertainment keeps feet moving in rhythm. Interactive events include salsa-dance lessons, charanga bands, and reenactments of the charge up San Juan Hill.
