Alma de Cuba
Philadelphia has famous local restaurateur Stephen Starr and chef Douglas Rodriguez to thank for Alma de Cuba, a dark and atmospheric multilevel restaurant serving inventive Latin-fusion cuisine. The lounge of this beloved Philly spot offers a great tapas menu and a well-curated craft-cocktail list (starring the best mojitos this side of Cuba), which make its weekday happy hour one of the city's favorites. The kitchen is known for its lechón asado (roast pork), as well as creative riffs on ceviches and variations on guacamole, including a divine one spiked with smoked hazelnut.
