Since this resto is fairly new and not included on TA's Detroit List, Here is a quick review:
Located on Library St., off of Detroit's Grand Circus Park. Easy directions --- walk down Woodward away from Fox/Comerica and twd the river. Turn left onto Grand River... then right onto Library (Farmer St. runs into it there, too.)
My boyfriend and I ate here before a Tigers gamein May. It was lovely. It wasn't jammed like the restos around the stadium, tho its only a few minutes walk.
I ordered Ropa Vieja - "old clothes" :-) This is beef braised in a tangy tomato and veggie sauce, then shredded. Served with terrific rice, black beans and sauteed sweet plantains. My boyfriend had shrimp in a buttery, garlicky herb sauce with lime, I think. Served with rice and an avocado and tomato salad. We split a HUGE piece of mango cheesecake. The server said it's home made and it tasted like it! Mmmmmm! We would go back, no problem. We'd love to try the Cuban sandwiches, served only at lunch and house drink - the Mojito - which is lime juice, rum, mint, ice and I 'm not sure what else.
Strongly recommend!
