Half conossieur, half amazed explorer,. As a co-founder of AlaMesa I've witness the evolution of restaurants and bars in this city I adore. I've pick up this experiences and wrote about them online, and now I want to share some of what I've learn with you.
Join me for a tour through one of Havana’s most popular paladares. In Cuba, the term "paladar" refers to a privately-run restaurant. In the last decade, a culinary culture has emerged around paladares and we will discover it together. We will visit a paladar and tour the areas learning about the strategy implemented to deal with the most common challenges of small businesses in Cuba. Then we will share lunch and talk about the evolution of this industry in recent years and the impacts on local culture.
We'll meet outside La Catedral restaurant.
Calle 8 entre Calzada y 5ta, en el Vedado, Plaza de la Revolución
