Cuban, or simply, Good Rice & Beans

  • z

I need a good Cuban restaurant, preferably not too expensive, and also kid friendly (but not touristy).

  1. Victor's Cafe, on W 52nd near Broadway, might be just what you're looking for. Very good Cuban cooking (rice and beans and fried plaintains are both great, by the way), family-friendly. They may be a bit on the pricey side for you... check out the entree prices on, you can assess for yourself.

    There's also a kind of Cuban/Mexican hybrid called Cafe Habana on Prince Street. Cheaper, still a great place for rice and beans. It's not a Cuban dish, I don't think, but the grilled corn there is very good.
