“Havana” becomes “Habana” with Jack Dudum taking the ownership reins. But customers may not notice much of a difference, and for a while, even the credit card slips continued to say “Havana.” Soon after the new awnings went up, our lunch crew settled in and delighted in the Cuban sandwiches and garlic boniato fries. If the sandwiches deviate much from before, it’s hard to tell. Mojitos, ceviche, crab cakes, the ropa vieja sandwich and the chimichurri skirt steak remain customer favs. Paella makes its way onto many plates, too. Lunch never looks busy, but evenings, especially during happy hour, rock. The décor is as stylish, airy and transportive as before (can the dozen or so mojitos on offer possibly have any bearing in that regard?), and the same posters of serene street scenes and classic American cars decorate the walls. It’s the closest you’ll get to Cuba in Alameda for sure. Serves lunch and dinner Mon.–Fri. Brunch and dinner Sat.–Sun.
