CHOSE THE AMOUNT
If it’s authentic Cuban music you’re looking for, the best starting point is probably Guantanamera, a small restaurant on Eighth Avenue just north of 56th Street so unassuming that it’s easy to miss from the sidewalk.
"Jumping" is the word on this "fun" Midtown Cuban where the "tasty", "authentic" chow is nearly overwhelmed by the "amazing mojitos" and "ridiculously loud live music"; "reasonable" rates and hand-rolled cigars on Friday and Saturday nights supply extra "oomph."
