Surrounded these days by chichi shops, this blast-from-the-past Latin dive—with wood paneling, fluorescent lighting, a drop ceiling, and stick-to-your-ribs Cuban fare—has been and remains popular with generations of old-timers, late-night clubbers, and a motley mélange of locals and in-the-know visitors who appreciate a good feed at good prices. Classics include the sandwich cubano (ham, roast pork, Swiss cheese, mustard, and pickles on pressed Cuban-style baguette), as well as a similar sandwich called a medianoche; picadillo, a ground-beef hash a bit like sloppy joe filling but with loaded with garlic, onions, olives, and raisins; and shrimp enchiladas in a tangy, tomato-based sauce.
