Location Description:

Yuca on Lincoln road offers Nuevo Latino cuisine with a focus on modernized Cuban dishes. There's ample outdoor seating, a lounge area, and a dining room that is open and welcoming with big windows. This is a perfect place to order a mojito and watch the crowds go by. The lunch menu offers a selection of Cuban tapas such as ropa vieja, ceviche, and croquetas, as well as larger entrées such as yuca rellena, guava barbecue baby-back ribs, and snapper topped with sofrito. The dinner menu is similar to the lunchtime offering and includes additional items such as sugar-cane guava shrimp, grilled salmon with yuca and onion, and yuca-crusted rack of lamb. Desserts are rich and decadent. They include a tres leches de turrón, Cuban rice pudding, and mango tiramisu. After dinner, check out the salsa club upstairs. Dance instructors and drinks specials ensure a fun evening.
