Cubana Cafe- Smith Street

Though I know that this place isn't really a new addition to Smith Street, it is a new addition to my short list of places to head when I'm in the mood for some good cocktails and decent Cuban food. I had an excellent watermelon martini-type drink last night. They use fresh watermelon which happend to be really juicy, sweet and totally refreshing. The corn w/ chipotle mayo was indulgent but so worth it. The cuban sandwich, in my opinion, is solid as well. The pork was not dry and the sandwich was toasted perfectly. I like the vibe of the place. The only downside is the table set-up. It kind of tight, but once you're seated I don't think it's much of a problem.
Good local joint. Glad I went.
