Florida Café & Cuban Bakery
Chef Sergio Perez left his native Havana with his mother's recipes in tow more than 20 years ago, and he still uses them to whip together Cuban fare at The Florida Café & Cuban Bakery. For the past 15 years, he's been crafting cuban sandwiches, paella, slow-roasted pork, fried cow, and shrimp enchiladas from this eatery, which calls The Shalimar Hotel home. Sergio pairs the Cuban eats with live music and signature mojitos. The restaurant's bakery arm churns out housemade sweets, including fresh guava cakes that are the perfect complement to the café con leche.
