Cafe Cortadito is a moderately-priced Cuban joint located at 210 E 3rd St. between Avenues B and C. Reviewers on Menu Pages rave about the food and the intimate space but bemoan the long waits and in some cases, rude service. Up until recently it was BYOB but the website tells us now the restaurant is serving some wine and beer. Ay Carumba!
We're looking at the menu right now and you must excuse our drool but the Cuban Bocaditos and the Croquetas are calling our names. The NY Times also liked the ropa vieja, a shredded beef in creole sauce and the bread pudding for "lingering" after the meal.
However, Bret didn't really get to linger here with Brahbrah as Jemaine showed up 15 minutes early for his date with her. Still it all worked out alright for Bret in the end. Despite unknowingly killing a few epileptic dogs at their benefit concert with their strobe light display, Brahbrah expressed interest in Bret over Jemaine, you know..."If he's straight."
