Thanks to Jessica Hentoff’s restaurant suggestion, I went to Cuba Libre for dinner Monday evening. Aaron joined.
Aside from the fish dinner in Tangier in February, this is the single best meal of the year so far.
And I will long dream about the spinach Manchego buñuelos, creamy fried balls of indescribable deliciousness that hit every spot on the tongue just perfectly.
We both ordered the tasting menu, which was more than filling.
I opted for the lechón asado as my main.
Let me just say THANK YOU to Jessica, and “I’ll be back as soon as I can” to Cuba Libre!
The meal started with toasted Cuban bread with mango butter. And then progressed from the sublime to most sublime.
