Cuba Libre

Cuban Sandwich...(wasn't as hungry the second night we went)

Cuba Libre Review

Philadelphia import Guillermo Pernot's rollicking supper club is decked out like an Epcot Center version of Havana, a Technicolor bravado that's matched by his bold "Nuevo Cubano" cuisine. The fish is served with cheeky accompaniments such as Cointreau-spiked salsa on seviche, while even an old-school standard like guacamole can't escape without a postmodern tweak of pineapple. But playing with tradition pays off—the creamy six-seafood paella is pure magic, and the watermelon mojito puts the old-fashioned style to shame. The vivacious bar scene, even on weeknights, makes this no place for families or those seeking a quieter night.
