Fodor's Expert Review Havana Blue
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
The cuisine here is described as Latin America meets Pacific Rim, but however you describe it, the dining experience is outstanding. Entrées include mojito-glazed skirt steak, chili-blackened ahi tuna, and sofrito-marinated chicken breast. Be sure to sample the mango mojito, made with fresh mango, crushed mint, and lime. A glowing wall of water meets you as you enter this beachfront eatery, and then you're seated at a table laid with linen and silver that's illuminated in a soft blue light radiating from above. Hand-rolled cigars and aged rums finish the night off in true Latin style. For something really special, request an exclusive table for two set on Morning Star Beach—you get a seven-course tasting menu, champagne, and your own personal waiter, all for $450 for two.
