cubana social on north 6th street

Two bloody marys with a hidden surprise - pickled onions (!!)


Chicken empanada - plump, crispy goodness


Kale and avocado ensalada tossed with lime, ceviche’d onion, and jalapeño



The boy and I walked by this adorable restaurant in Williamsburg and had to go inside. We had a small snack but I left wanting a real meal. I loved their brunch menu that consisted of heavy hitters like rum toast (thick slices of cuban bread soaked in battenkill creamery milk, flor de cana rum, and organic eggs, topped with fresh fruit and house roasted nuts) and also simple, clean dishes like a side of avocado sliced with lime and chili. Not only was the service great, my bloody mary spot on, and the food great, but the roomy, sun-filled atmosphere was perfect for a beautiful weekend afternoon. Cubana Social, I will definitely be back!
