That Cuban Cruiser is their punny take on a Cuban sandwich, with house-smoked pork loin, ham, Swiss cheese and those classic zippy Cuban toppings: pickle slices and mustard. It was tasty, but I found myself wishing it were pressed like other Cubans I love.
You can get your sammies with any side, and we picked the Nautical Corn to stick with the boat-y theme. It was a creamy concoction that gave nostalgic vibes. We tried the smoked macaroni and cheese too, which offered plenty of gooey cheesiness and was light on smoky flavor.
We also ordered the chicken wings appetizer. I love that they are served with the Buffalo sauce on the side because I like my wings naked and dunked by hand for customized sauce distribution and a less messiness. And these wings were delish. Tender, juicy and perfectly crispy, they were my favorite part of our meal.
We didn’t order any of the barbecue-centric options, but we were interested in the burnt end brioche. A soft brioche bun is topped with charred smoked brisket and served on a roll that’s sprinkled with burnt end seasoning.
Although I visited in the afternoon with my daughter, I’m anxious to go back in the evening. That’s when the sunset views are at their best, and live music adds a bouyant vibe to the scene. In fact, this might be the motivation I need to plan a date night with my husband.
