New York, NY 10013
Village Voice's Description
This simple place seems transplanted from Ipanema or Rio Piedrasaa place to stop and eat while greeting friends and sipping rum. Whitewashed brick walls, oscillating fans, and a guayabera-clad wait staff who greet you with "Buena" almost make for a substitute vacation. The bar portion of the restaurant offers a drinker's tour of the rum beverages of the Hispanic world. Select a daiquiri worthy of Hemingway's Floridita, or a mojito, which adds a sprig of mint to lime juice and white rum. Brazil's habit-forming caipirinha, made as it should be with Pitu cachaASSa, is also available, as are appropriate wines and beers from Panama to Guatemala, including Bacardi's retake on Cuba's classic Hatuey.
