The Taste And Glamour Of Old-time Havana Comes To Long Island

NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Havana Central - the popular Manhattan eatery known for festive ambiance and high-quality, authentic Cuban comfort food – opens its fourth outpost on Long Island at Roosevelt Field in Garden City, NY.

"Our new location offers the authentic Cuban cuisine, delicious mojitos and live Latin music that guests in Manhattan and Westchester have come to love," said Jeremy Merrin, Founder & President of Havana Central. "We're excited to partner with Simon Properties at the best location on Long Island. Locals will now be able to experience the tastes, sounds and energy of pre-revolutionary Havana. Buen Provecho!"

Expertly fashioned by Garrett Singer Architecture & Design, the restaurant features decor inspired by Cuba's legendary hospitality destinations, evoking Havana's heyday through tropical accents and 1950's-era artifacts. The main dining room of the 13,000 sq. ft. double-story interior features cigar-toned leather booths and cabanas draped in flowing curtains; set against walls hand-painted in distressed sunset shades and flanked by banana leaf trees in cast iron urns. The bar, designed after Havana's original Sloppy Joe's Bar - the country's famous watering hole - is anchored by a mahogany display case filled with backlit rum bottles and surrounded by art deco light pendants.  Three private event rooms are available and, when weather permits, guests can retreat to the outdoor veranda for an authentic Cuban oasis.

Havana Central's corporate chef, Stanley Licairac offers expertly crafted all-day menus of traditional Cuban recipes infused with fresh, seasonal ingredients. Signature dishes include Handmade Empanadas ($3); Vaca Frita ($19.50); Ropa Vieja ($17.50); Cuban Sandwich ($12); Cuban Flan ($6) and Tres Leches Cake ($8).

The wine list features exceptional finds from Latin America, Spain and Portugal, offered alongside Manhattan's "best" Mojitos and Sangrias made tableside and house specialties like the Long Island Mojito ($12).

Havana Central is located at Roosevelt Field, 630 Old Country Road, Garden City, NY 11530. A full menu is served Sunday – Thursday, 11:30 a.m.11 p.m. and Friday - Saturday, 11:30 a.m.12:30 a.m.; with weekday lunch specials available until 4 p.m. Call 516-739-7900 for reservations or to book a private event.
