Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar’s extrasensory dining experience returns this Valentine’s Day, complete with blindfolds! Couples who dine at the restaurant on Monday, February 14 will be treated to complimentary chocolate truffles and a black satin eye mask (while supplies last), as couples are encouraged to use it during dinner for that extra sizzle. Reservations are recommended.
“We hope that this mask will spark much more joy than the N-95s that the CDC is recommending for everyone,” quipped Cuba Libre Founder and CEO Barry Gutin. “We’ve all been sporting masks for safety for nearly two years, and we’re super excited to have the opportunity to present a different type of mask to our diners — one that will make our delectable dining experience even more special.”
For couples celebrating early, romantic dinner specials will be available all weekend long from Friday, February 11 through 14. Here’s the amorous menu:
Torta de Cangrejo ($18)- Pan seared crab cake, shaved fennel, celery hearts, and Kalamata olive slaw. Charred tomato remoulade.
Platos Fuertes (Main Course Options)
Pescado de Oriente ($30)- Marinated whole roasted striped bass fillet on the griddle, “Chino-Cubano” vegetable fried rice and baby sprout salad. Sweet chile-citrus and sesame.
Island Rose Martini ($12)- Garzon Rose Pinot Noir wine, Brinley Shipwreck Vanilla Rum, St. Germain Liqueur, fresh lime juice and edible rose petals.
