As a reminder, all donations will be given to The Active 20-30 Club of NYC Group #1044 and the last day to donate is January 3rd.

Dine Amongst the Palm Trees at Victor’s Cafe 52

December 17, 2014 12:02 pm

For over 50 years, Victor’s Café 52 has been an institution in New York’s Theater District. Taking pride in being a family owned restaurant, Victor's offers what they believe is the evolution of Cuban food — what it would be like today if politics had less of an influence on the island’s development.

A nice selection of small plate appetizers— like the Aguacate Relleno, a stuffed avocado—leads many diners to think of Victor's as a tapas cafe. However, the menu also offers full size entrees like Ropa Vieja, a slow braised, pulled skirt steak and the Lechon Asado, or suckling pig. If you want the whole Victor’s experience, go for the Taste of Cuba, a fixed price, three course sampler with several appetizers, entrees, and dessert.

The full bar specializes in sangria, both red and white, as well as mojitos. Diners rave that the food at Victor’s is among the best Cuban food they’ve tasted. The atmosphere transports you to Miami. Main dining rooms have a sleek, south Florida vibe and the sunroom with glass roof lets in plenty of light for the cheerful palm trees. Victor’s is popular for post-theatre drinks, so plan your visit accordingly.
