Jorge Castillo: The home of our ancestors.
Glenn Lindgren: In Cuba, the Spanish cuisine was adapted and modified to take advantage of locally available ingredients. The indigenous Indian population, African slaves and even Cuba's near-by Caribbean neighbors also influenced the Cuban cooking style.
Raúl Musibay: Occasionally, we like to get back to our roots and eat at a classic Spanish restaurant.
Glenn Lindgren: Casa Paco is another one of the many gems you can discover on Bird Road. Unassuming on the exterior, it is elegantly decorated inside. Owner Francisco Ambas has created a great atmosphere with authentic Spanish tile work, fabrics, and pottery.
Jorge Castillo: Although it is more formal in the evening, casual dress is acceptable at lunch.
Raúl Musibay: Casa Paco offers many of the classics of Spanish Cuisine.
Jorge Castillo: Casa Paco also does a very good rendition of Bacalao, or codfish.
Glenn Lindgren: You can't go wrong with any of the dishes featuring pargo (red snapper), salmón, or mero (grouper).
Jorge Castillo: Check out the Conejo al Jerez (rabbit in sherry sauce), Pollo a la Parrilla (grilled chicken), Cordero Sepúlveda (roast lamb), Chuletas de Cordero (tender lamb chops), and Pallarda de Ternera (grilled veal).
Raúl Musibay: If you still have room after eating all of this great Spanish food, try a dessert.
