Asia de Cuba

The new Asia de Cuba restaurant takes heed from the classic ‘90’s fixture of the New York dining scene. The restaurant creates a contemporary dining experience while blending subtle references to 90’s postmodernism and Cuban Art Deco. The material palette hints at old Havana with its soft pastel hues yet remains sleek and modern in its use of marble, satin mirrors, and dark woods.

The dining atmosphere is intimate yet lively; small booths and tables encourage close conversation while the open layout of the dining room allows unobstructed views across the restaurant.
