Had a great Cuban dinner at Little Havana on Cornelia Street Friday night. Don't know why this place doesn't get more hound attention. Started with a just-right tamal. My companion enjoyed salmon accompanied by the best plantains we've ever tasted, and I had the best ropa vieja in the city. Dessert was a caramel flan. Prices very reasonable.
If you're looking for a good Cuban spot, I recommend this inexplicably overlooked gem.
