Beginning next Tuesday evening, June 1, and continuing on succeeding Tuesdays, Sra. Martinez will be cooking up an all-you-can-eat Cuban pig roast. The slow-cooked-in-a-caja China porker is due to be accompanied by heirloom tomato salad, roasted fingerling potatoes, and other side dishes -- all served family style. The menu will vary week to week. "We wanted to give classic caja China backyard barbecue an upscale spin," says Bernstein. Which reminds us: Price is $35 plus tax and tip.
