New York, NY
The new Asia de Cuba restaurant takes heed of the classic fixture of the ’90s New York dining scene, blending subtle references to that decade’s postmodernism and Cuban Art Deco. The material palette hints at old Havana with its soft pastel hues, yet remains sleekly modern in its use of marble, satin mirrors, and dark woods.
Guests enter the restaurant through a narrow hallway, passing the dynamism of an open kitchen, and emerge onto a romantically lit dining room. The atmosphere is intimate yet lively; small booths and tables encourage close conversation, while the open layout of the dining room allows unobstructed views across the restaurant.
