Big portions, tasty fare, inexpensive prices -- is it any wonder the lines are so long? This Cuban-Spanish café features tapas such as chickpeas sautéed with chorizo, and cold seafood marinated in a vinaigrette dressing.

Crema catalana, the house dessert, is blowtorched right at the table for that delicate, burnt-sugar crust.
