Located at 415 Lafayette Street and under the culinary leadership of Executive Chef Luis Pous, Asia de Cuba makes its long-awaited return to New York City. Representing the perfect culinary marriage of Latin and Asian ingredients, techniques and flavors, the innovative menu is sophisticated yet whimsical, and above all, fun. The newly updated menu consists of five main sections: Ceviches, Small Plates, Salads, Wok and Plancha and features an extensive selection of hand-crafted cocktails, built on classic formulas, that draw inspiration from Asia and Cuba and mirror the approachable and tropical nature of the food. Chef Pous, who grew up and trained as a chef in Cuba, intertwines his heritage and experience with Jeffrey Chodorow's original vision. The new menu represents Chef Pous’ interpretation of what Asian-influenced Cuban food would be today if Cubans had been able to innovate and evolve their cuisine over the past 50 years, when they did not have access to the range of global ingredients which had been available to the rest of the world.
Renowned designer Rafael de Cardenas created the interior for Asia de Cuba. Evoking the hazy, seductive feeling of Havana's gloried nightlife past, the restaurant's interior is a contemporary reflection of Asia de Cuba's unique personality and legacy.
