With it’s modest creams, beige accents and mirrored walls, Asia De Cuba is more akin to a formal hotel restaurant, than one of the liveliest fusion restaurants in New York, yet the Philip Starck minimalism is deliberate. Restaurateur Jeffrey Chodorow is more interested in creating “social and culinary fireworks”, than purely providing a themed space to draw attention – but somehow pulls off both with such aplomb, the restaurant now tops a number of the critics lists for originality.

Asia De Cuba does exactly as the name suggests – combines Latin and Asian cuisines to create blends found nowhere else on earth. Lobster Mai Thai receives red wine and curry twist, while Beef Dumplings are offered on a bed of coconut rice. Patrons also favor the Bok Choy Roast Pork, given a flavorful lift with citrus and fruit infusions.
