Excelencias Turísticas del caribe y las Américas - - Caracol Cadena De Tiendas -

Lo­ca­ted right in the heart of the thea­ter strip of the cos­mo­po­li­tan Lí­nea Street, one of Ha­va­na's most emblematic res­tau­rants reope­ned in the month of March: El Jar­dín (The Gar­den), a genuine gas­tro­no­mic sa­fe haven hou­sed in a fancy neo­co­lo­nial man­sion from the 1940s, dec­ked out with beau­ti­ful French-sty­le doors and win­dows pa­ned with fa­ke church-li­ke glass.

Re­kind­led by Res­tau­ran­tes de La Ha­ba­na Co., its main loun­ge is spru­ced up with mo­dern trend­set­ting de­signs. The res­tau­rant's spe­cialty is in­ter­na­tio­nal cui­si­ne, yet it has ma­de room to har­bor so­me of the most de­li­cious Cuban food. Sin­ce early in the mor­ning (8:00 am), pa­trons can choo­se from an array of ty­pi­cal Cuban break­fasts, as well as con­ti­nen­tal and Ame­ri­can break­fasts, al­ways ser­ved al­fres­co in an open te­rra­ce. La­ter on, from 11:00 am to 6:30 pm, as­sor­ted pre-me­nu dis­hes are ser­ved with a drink.

The main cour­ses at the main loun­ge -open from noon to mid­night- are Jar­dín mi­xed sa­lad (exo­tic ve­ge­ta­bles sea­so­ned with a se­cret re­ci­pe crea­ted by the hou­se) and Ru­blos de Po­llo (chic­ken) si­de-dis­hed by sau­téed ve­ge­ta­bles. The­se of­fers speak vo­lu­mes of the ba­lan­ce the hou­se tries to stri­ke bet­ween healthy food and good co­oking. What's more, El Jar­dín boasts a couple of bars that dish out ama­zing cock­tails and drinks, with the Gin To­nic Jar­dín top­ping the list. And for tho­se who come loo­king for a much th­rif­tier no­te bet­ween 9:00 am and noon, the ca­fe­te­ria has what it ta­kes with a se­lec­tion of pas­tries, sand­wi­ches and nosh food.

A few days from now, El Jar­din will open a bar on the mez­za­ni­ne spe­cia­li­zed in in­ter­na­tio­nal cock­tails and ta­pas, so­met­hing that will su­rely be­co­me a must-vi­sit pla­ce du­ring the bohe­mian Ha­va­na nightli­fe.
