Havana Cafe is a Cuban restaurant in Schuylerville in the Bronx that’s perfect for a group lunch, brunch, or casual dinner. It gets pretty crowded with families and clusters of friends catching up, but the restaurant is giant, so you shouldn’t have too much trouble getting a table. The portions of classic Cuban food will likely leave you with a second meal’s worth of leftovers - especially because all of the entrees come with rice, beans, and plantains. We especially like the juicy, perfectly salty ropa vieja.

Reasons to visit Coppelia? It's cheap, it's open 24 hours, and for a diner, it's pretty good. Good enough.
Caracas Arepa Bar
Caracas takes pride in serving the most authentic Venezuelan food in the city. Who are we to disagree? This is by far and away the best Venezuelan restaurant we’ve been to. It’s also the only Venezuelan place we’ve been to.
