- Founded in Habana Cuba, and the original creators of the Mojito this place has been and continues to be frequented by the movers and shakers of Latin culture. Hemingway, Garcia Marquez, Castro, Che Guevara, all have gone through the Bodeguita to sample their amazing cuisine, cocktails, or step into the restaurant's humidor for any of their hundred differnet brands of cigars. To prove their assistance, the Bodeguita del Medio allows costumers to write their name on any of the walls - and often ceiling - of the locale making for interesting reading. The idea here is to order various dishes which then get shared with everyone at the table. The Moros y Cristianos (Moors and Christians - black beans and rice), their Ropa Vieja (Old Clothes - shredded beef), and fried plantains are worth the visit. Dinners are livened up by original cuban quartets and although there is little space for dancing, people manage to squeeze a few twirls in any open space. Dinner here on the weekends is an unforgettable lively event.
