Village Voice's Description

Started in 1963 by Cuban immigrant Victor Del Corral, Victor's Cafe 52 has bringing quality authentic Cuban cuisine to Midtown for half a century. Victor's sure is Cuban, and that is not to be taken lightly. It is host to nightly music from super-talented Cuban musicians, serves killer mojitos and sangria among a forest of fake pine trees, and, perhaps most importantly, cooks a spot-on ropa vieja—Victor's signature. The dish, which is a traditional Cuban preparation of skirt steak, is heavily seasoned with garlic and served with tomatoes, onions, and peppers inside a plantain nest. They've got less traditional fare, too, like the filet mignon or the hamburger and chorizo sliders, but overall the menu is extremely heavy on the meat (but not exactly light on the wallet). --Shane Barnes

Tips from foursquare

  • Gilt City on 08/17/11

    Many of the dishes at Victor’s are still made with old family recipes. Some of the highlights: succulent lobster empanadas, chicken skewers with spicy mango sauce and sweet tres leches cake.

  • New York Habitat on 11/18/11

    Victor's is in a great location and their pre theatre prix fixe menu brilliant. Get the ropa vieja, some sangria, and stick around to enjoy the live music.

  • The Corcoran Group on 12/22/10

    Awesome atmosphere and aromas from this delicious Cuban joint. Try the not so cheap pitcher of Sangria and the lobster empanadas.

  • Albert S. on 10/17/10

    Phenomenal Cuban food! The mini frita sliders are exquisite!

    As seen on Love & Hip Hop -- The places where Ebro calls himself schooling Jen and Raqi on not being bimbos on the radio. http://on.vh1.com/17Fda6B
