Going to Havana before it is Starbuck-ized

debd | Jan 11, 201602:07 PM     7

Going with friends on a cultural tour of Cuba in late January. Most meals are part of the package, but we have two nights where we are on our own. We are boomers not particularly into risk taking, so no "drive for 25 minutes & walk down dark street" options. But we do like good food. Staying at the Hotel Palacio O'Farrill in Old Town. Looking into Bourdain's places from both Parts Unknown and No Reservations, but know that he has way more ins than we do. Anyone been to Havana and have recommendations for good food at a palandar (seems like a better option than the state run choices)?
