Foursquare Tips

  • Cuban gold. Go for brunch where $23 gets you an entree and unlimited cocktails. Their recently added Lobster Benedict will have you speaking spanish in no time. Shame the music is on an ipod loop.
  • Food is great. Service is pretty terrible.
  • You gotta be forceful to secure a table. Gotta dish that sass right back. But overall a solid brunch place in alphabet city.
  • Ok seriously, the BEST beans and rice EVER. so simple, yet so perfect.
  • The plantain omelet with chorizo and ham on the side is AMAZING. Their yuca fries are really good too!
  • Don't sit outside for brunch around 1pm. The lady upstairs waters her plants and sprays dirt all over your food/clothes! Cortadito is willing to replace all your food/drinks though!
  • First authentic Cuban spot I've found in NYC, take it from a Cuban! The arroz con pollo was delicious. The ropa vieja was just like they make back home.
  • Perfect end to a perfect dinner!!! Tres Leches it is indeed!!
  • Can't go wrong with seafood paella!!!! Bunga Bunga!!!!
  • The best paper towels in el bano in NYC
  • Ropa vieja was fabulous. Also the avocado pineapple salad
  • Patricia and Ricardo are amazing. Weekends are too busy. Go mid-week for a great meal and experience.
  • I could live off their skirt steak with chimmichurri sauce... Best I've had!
  • Patricia and Ricardo are amazing hosts. The classic churrasco with rice and beans is simple and wonderful!
  • Waiter was lovely. Manager informed us that we could only split the bill between 2 credit cards! No sign posted about this rule, and our party wasn't alerted beforehand. A bit rude.
  • Almost forgot. Food is decent but they treat you like a criminal if you get unlimited brunch. Never coming back.
  • Worst service ever. Over an hour & 1/2 for food. The drink carafes were not refilled in a timely manner. Never coming here again.
  • Food is ok. Brunch deal is pretty good, but the options for drinks are sugary pitchers. Got drunk, but not drunk enough. Service was slow and rude.
  • Brunch: AYCD mimosas and sangrias with Cuban dish for $23
  • Sit outside if possible for brunch, unless you wanna do some brunch time clubbin'
