Best Cubano in Brooklyn or Queens?

Where in Brooklyn or Queens can the best Cubanos be found?
Not sure if it's the best, but I had a very tasty one the other day at El Cibao on Smith Street (Wyckoff & Warren). I had always preferred the place down the street (El Nuevo Portal) until a poster told me about Cibao, and I am now convinced that they have a better Cubano.
Please let me know if you find out anything different. Williamsburg is probably a good bet.
Well, you and Brian have me excited about trying the dinner specials as El Rincon Criollla on my next trek to NYC (perhaps in December). But to get back to the original question, what are their Cubanos like? What bread do they use, and how do they stack up with what one might get, say, in Miami?
Can't comment on the quality since it isn't open yet, but there is apparently a new Cuban place coming to Sunnyside--just across the street (55th?) from La Flor. They've been remodeling the place (that hasn't been used for anything I know of) for over a month know. I asked a painter what it was going to be. His answer: "Cubano restaurant."
