Laurel's Cuban Restaurant

Laurel's Cuban Restaurant

The meals are straight up Cuban cooking, and vary by degrees between simple and soulful to exotic and elegant. The range is creative and exhaustive, covering the gamut of Cuban meals, including grilled and fried seafood, steak, pork, chicken, rabbit, some earthy stews, and a wicked paella. The sauces, or salsas to be precise, are exquisite, with subtle hints of saffron, citrus, and seafood au jus that make the grilled fish melt in your mouth.
