Lario's New
Lario's on the Beach (a Bongos Cuban Café restaurant) is part of Cuban megastar Gloria Estefan's successful Cuban restaurant chain. It's still right in the middle of South Beach – you can't miss it!

Glenn Lindgren: Gloria and Emilio loved the original Lario's so much they wanted to bring it closer to their South Beach offices. Very convenient! Gloria's star power helped the restaurant get started, and that's what keeps the crowds coming back night after night.

Jorge Castillo: You'll find a wide selection of authentic Cuban dishes at Lario's, including several delicious tortillas (omelets) and the classic Cuban sandwiches: sandwich Cubano, medianoche (the Cuban sandwich's sweeter cousin), pan con bistec (Cuban-style steak) , pan con lomo de puerco (pork loin) and the Elena Ruz.

At the bar
Glenn Lindgren: Try an Appetizer. The tamales and papa rellenas are always a great choice. For a real treat, order the tostones con mojo (plantains with garlic) or an excellent masitas – fried pork chunks.

Raúl Musibay: When Jennifer Lopez was in Miami making a film with Sean Connery, she liked the food so much she ate there every day.

Jorge Castillo: She must have really liked the food. She ended up marrying her waiter!

Glenn Lindgren: Really? Wow. Maybe we should all try to get jobs there – as waiters!

Raúl Musibay: I don't think our wives would like that.

Glenn Lindgren: Hey readers, have you ever tried a Cuban Hamburger? Order the frita Cubana for a different twist on the American favorite.

Raúl Musibay: Beef lovers will like the bistec de palomilla (palomilla steak), churrasco, boliche (Cuban pot roast) and the vaca frita (fried beef), here made with tender skirt steak. We especially liked the pechuga de pollo rellena con Camarones (chicken breast stuffed with shrimp) and enchilado de pescado (fish Creole).

Jorge Castillo: Don't forget the dessert. They are good here with several flavors of flan and a rich tres leches cake. Big enough for two to share, unless you're still hungry after that great dinner.

Enjoying outdoor dining on a Warm December afternoon in Miami Beach.
