The logo, website and overall aesthetic of this Cuban concept has a definite chain feel, but, luckily, the food tastes more of a grandma’s kitchen than a marketing department. The Cubano is built on a hearty foundation of moist and flavorful roasted pork, and other sandwich classics like ropa vieja (shredded beef in a tomatoey sauce) and media noche (ham, pork and cheese on sweet bread) are also solidly pleasing renditions. Soul-warming black beans are a particular standout among the sides, and for an exotic touch, try a shake in a tropical fruit flavor like mamey or guanabana.
