Restaurant-Bar Floridita Review
This time warp of a restaurant was known to have been a hangout of Ernest Hemingway and prides itself as being the "cradle of the daiquirí." In 1953, Esquire even dubbed the bar one of the seven most famous in the world. Dishes paying homage to Hemingway include the Grand Plato Hemingway with lobster, fish, and shrimp in garlic sauce with peppers and exotic vegetables. The atmosphere is dark and austere, with oversize waiters dressed in undersize red-and-white formal wear plying away at daiquirí or other cocktails. A life-size sculpture of Hemingway overlooks the bar eternally.
