Jennifer Lopez wanted her place to feel like Mom's house. Details recall Old Havana, such as menus designed like cigar boxes. The staff is warm, even and are even willing to climb up on chairs to snap photos of birthday parties and gatherings. Fried appetizer offerings such as papas rellanas and Spanish chorizo tamales are popular. Entrees include slow-cooked dishes like ropa vieja and chicken fricasse as well as roasted pork.
