Profile

The owners of the old Xiomara space changed the name and spiffed up the interior with tufted cocoa-colored banquettes and faux-snakeskin accents, but the menu is still Cuban and the mojitos, made with fresh sugarcane juice, are still outstanding. Appetizers include extraordinary achiote grilled prawns over white bean hummus. The paella is chock-full of shrimp, mussels, and scallops, and tasty short ribs come with chorizo mashed potatoes. The music is live on the weekends, and late-night happy hour runs from 9 to closing during the week.
