You might be weary of going out to eat on Valentine’s Day considering all the snow, but Old City’s Cuba Libre has a Caribbean atmosphere so open, bright and bustling that you’ll feel like you’re on a mini-vacation. Treat yourself (and your sweetheart) to a fresh menu of empanadas, succulent seafood and gourmet deserts that will have you swashbuckling with your silverware to see who gets the last bite.

That’s what Peter Van Allen and I did for our most recent Biz Bites, in which we raided the restaurant of its finest treasures – from a crispy plantain chip and a rich guacamole to a juicy shrimp with the freshest, lightest cocktail sauce I’ve ever tasted.

Take a look to see Peter’s official ratings for taste, value and atmosphere. And if you want to escape the cold, how about a trip to Cuba? Cuba Libre that is.
