A wise sage once said, “The rhythm is gonna get you.”
At the time, you just never thought it would get you to order a bunch of mojitos and legendary roast
Turn it upside down at Larios on the Beach
, the totally redone Cuban spot that’s now got a
sexier, more Estefan-y touch (yes, Gloria and Emilio still own the place)—now open in Miami Beach.
Let’s take a look at what’s changed and what hasn’t:
Dark wood tables. Potted palm trees. A mural incorporating the Cuban flag.
The mural’s still there, but it’s flanked by cream-colored banquettes
, floors made of seashells and a candlelit lounge with wraparound
couches. Yes, we’re thinking date night, too.
Mammoth portions of traditional Cuban cooking.
That same legendary lechón, but bacon-wrapped maduros
, also... and
something sort of ominous-sounding called “Calorie Conscious Cuban.” Right. Lechón it is.
An upsetting lack of chandeliers festooned with harmonicas.
There’s a big one of those, once owned by Shakira. (Of course it was.) Also,
drumsticks that belonged to Sheila E., and a microphone used by Ricky Martin and Gloria Estefan.
No, you can’t use it.
