V&E Restaurant group is pleased to announce the opening of Havana 1957- a new restaurant in the heart of South Beach, which combines the flavors of traditional Cuban cuisine with the enchantment and sophistication of Havana in the 1950’s. On Friday, April 26th, Commissioner Exposito, joined by locals and Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce members, participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony welcoming the restaurant to Lincoln Road.
With elegant art deco touches, the interior décor of Havana 1957 embodies the jet set lifestyle of the movie stars that made Havana their playground. One of the most outstanding features of the restaurant is the classic Cuban Rum bar, which stocks over 100 varieties of rum from around the world. Here guests can enjoy a Cuba Libre or a Mojito cocktail in a sophisticated ambiance, surrounded by vintage Cuban memorabilia without leaving Miami Beach.
Havana 1957’s extensive menu contains authentic Cuban dishes prepared by renowned chef Juan Luis Rosales. By only using the freshest ingredients and perfecting each detail of presentation, the plates capture the vibrant taste that has made Cuban cuisine a culinary staple. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, highlights from the menu include the Havana 1957 Specialty (family traditional roasted chicken in a savory Cuban gravy served with white rice, black beans, salad and sweet plantains) as well as Churrasco a la Cubana (juicy charbroiled flank steak topped with grilled onions). Havana 1957 also offers delicious daily specials and a wide selection of seafood plates, sandwiches, salads, soups and bites such as croquetas, masitas de puerco (fried pork) and tostones rellenos (stuffed green plantains with beef or shrimp). Irresistible desserts include the traditional Flan de Leche (baked custard with a layer of caramelized sugar) and Pudin de Pan (old fashioned bread pudding) that are guaranteed to make mouths water with delight. Havana 1957 would not be complete without serving the staple Cuban Coffee, which is brewed exclusively with Café Pilon.
The highly anticipated Havana 1957 has arrived on Lincoln Road as a glamorous throwback to the days of the iconic Rat Pack. The restaurant is open daily from 9:00 AM to 1:00 AM and has complimentary wi-fi available for all guests. For more information please call 305.397.8683 or visit www.havana1957.com.
