Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar features Nuevo Cubano cuisine by two-time James Beard award-winning Chef Guillermo Pernot. Pernot's menus feature tantalizing tastes that are derived from the exotic island"s culinary traditions, which include Spanish, African, Creole and Asian influences. The restaurant's atmosphere transports guests to Old Havana circa the 1950s. One-of-a-kind millwork and architectural salvage including unique doors, gates, cabinetry, furniture and accessories help capture the essence of old Cuban architecture. Colorful exotic foliage and large potted palm trees add to Cuba Libre's open-air, tropical ambiance. Featuring a selection of over 70 rums, Cuba Libre's uniquely refreshing house specialty, the mojito, is made from the authentic Cuban recipe of combining rum, fresh lime juice, fresh mint leaves, a splash of soda and most distinctively, guarapo, sugar cane juice pressed daily on site.

"Four of us enjoyed drinks, fresh guacamole and Cuban sandwiches for a really different dining experience. Food was very good and it was nice to have lots of choices and a different taste than so many other restaurants. Really enjoyable evening with the beautiful atmosphere, too."

"We had a truly delicious meal at Seasons 52, and totally enjoyed being waited on by our young cousin Matt at the bar - our meal was really wonderful and it was so nice to see Matt as we had missed him at a couple of other family gatherings. He is moving to Denver to open a brand new Seasons 52 which should be a smashing success! The bbq chicken entre salad was perfectly dressed, the chicken very tender; my husband's trout was an impressive portion and perfectly cooked, with no bones."

"First time diner and it is a lovely restaurant with a "lively" area with more music and a quiet area - very considerate seating options. The decor was beautiful and tasteful. Restaurant week choices were good, and we all enjoyed our meal very much - will definitely bring others to give it a try - looked at the regular lunch and the brunch menus and am already planning a brunch in the next month or so - a nice find and a keeper!"
