Asia de Cuba is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC!

Located in midtown's Morgans Hotel, Asia de Cuba is a trendy Latin-Asian fusion sharing-style restaurant in an elegant, marble and alabaster setting.

This two floor restaurant has the bar and lounge area on the 2nd floor with the dining area on the 1st floor. In the middle is a long 20 seat illuminated alabaster communal table. A floor-to-ceiling hologram creates a dramatic backdrop.

This place is great for a date or for groups! Staff are friendly and knows the food they serve!

The food is exceptional.

For a start, try the must-have calamari salad that exudes the exotic latin and asian flavors in the mixture of banana, cashews, and chayote, lightly coated with sesame orange dressing or the mouth-watering pan seared jumbo sea scallops with sweet and sour plantains that is succulent and seductive.

For entrees, I recommend my favorites with the perfect latin-asian mix: pan seared ahi tuna with wasabi mashed potatoes or honey-rhum glazed pot roast of pork with shanghai bok choy and enoki mushrooms.

It's pricey. Starters are from $19-31 and entrees are from $26-55, but they are large portions meant for sharing. Each dish serves 2 to 3 people, and are enlarge to accomodate the number of people in the group so the price of the entree increases as well.

They also offer a 3-course prix-fix lunch for $29 per person or early prix-fix dinner for $39 per person.
