Don’t Miss: Try the sopa de frijoles negros (black bean soup) served with chopped red onion ($5.95) or the fried calamari with a spicy mix of salsa verde, salsa rojo and garlic aioli ($12.95). Sample a zesty ensalada de piña, a summer salad with pineapple, green beans, habanero, onion and cilantro topped with a tropical vinaigrette ($8.95). Or try traditional churrasco, grilled skirt steak with chimichurri sauce, white rice and black beans ($17.95).

Heads Up: Cubacàn is a short walk from Convention Hall and the Stone Pony.

The Scoop: A wide variety of drink specials are available, including sangrias, martinis and margaritas.
