Media Noche serves fast-casual Cuban food in a space that’s designed to be photographed: pretty tiles, turquoise paneling, and plants make it seem beachy and tropical. It’s an easy spot to go and get a sandwich, salad, or bowl, and it executes very well on the Cuban classics. The Cubano sandwich is phenomenal, and they do a rice and bean and brisket bowl that’s a little less messy and also great. Don’t skip the empanadas, and get some extra green sauce because it’s insanely good.
