Mirtha and Luis Soteras run a very tight ship. Service at their paladar—in a house that dates from 1925—is bright and quick, and dishes are prepared using traditional Cuban recipes. Tamal (dishes based on sweet corn), frituras de malanga, and ropa vieja de carnero (shredded lamb) are just a few of the criollo specialties. The enchilado de cangrejo (crab stew) is the star offering. Your meal may well be accompanied by Cuban music from the good old,
bad old days of the 1950s and 1960s.
