cafe habana (an authentic cuban diner). we shared the baja fish tacos and huevos rancheros. both were really good.
side note: i have to say that dining in nyc often means being crammed into tight spaces with many tables and chairs shoved together, and we're totally cool with that . . . but this place took it to a whole new level. it was so incredibly snug in there that we both literally couldn't move! i highly, highly suggest going during a non-busy time if you want to dine inside without sitting on top of the person next to you, or getting your food to go if you can. out of all of the places we've eaten at in nyc over the years, this took the cake for the tightest!
rice to riches, so we couldn't pass up stopping in for dessert (especially since it has been nearly four years since we have been there last)! after sampling a few different flavors, we landed on the mascarpone which had dried cherries in it.
it was busy inside and we were still feeling claustrophobic from brunch, so we got it to go and enjoyed it outside sitting on a park bench right across the street. (i love that they give you those adorable reusable containers and spoons too!)
