Senior Citizen Review of Alma de Cuba

I think we were the only customers over 35! A few unanticipated problems: light level so low we had to borrow a flashlight to read the menu. Seating too low. Noisy--between the cocktail party chatter and the Cuban music, one had to shout. I suspect the rest rooms were up what looked like three flights of stairs to what was probably a well lit, quiet dining room.

With that said, the food was interesting and delicious; service most attentive and gracious. We shared an unusual oyster dish--rich, spinach, cheese sause. My whole bronzino was atop a lovely chickpea stew, with some spinach atop. ON the side were absolutely yummy preserved lemon slices. Ooh, so good.

Shared flan/ice cream praline desert; the tab was $45. Will not return due to the noise level. Definitely a neat spot for the younger crowd. Nice vibe.
