Patricia Estorino, the owner of Gustazo, is as quiet and unassuming as her restaurant, despite what appears to be a great passion for her culture, heritage and native cuisine. She describes the food as "very traditional Cuban cuisine," and the restaurant décor as inspired by Spanish Colonial design. Both food prep and plating as well as the design of the restaurant are meticulous and well thought out. The food I'll describe below, but the tiny space the restaurant houses has been completely transformed into a beautiful Cuban oasis, complete with careful tile-work, a beautiful beaten copper ceiling and romantic lighting. Gustazo is a far cry from the uninspired take-out joints that neighbor the cozy café.

When I asked if a knack for the restaurant business ran in the family, Patricia reminisced about her grandparents who owned a traditional restaurant in Havana, that I can only imagine had the same meticulous attention to detail as Gustazo, with a few tiny tables already seating repeat customers and filling nightly after only 5 months of being opened
Appetizers Patricia highly recommended the Camarones al Ajillo (shrimp cooked in a very garlicky sauce, with red pepper flakes, paprika and mint; $9.50) and the Tortilla Espanola (a tort layered with potatoes and caramelized onions, $7).
...
I certainly agreed with Patricia on this - it was one of my favorites of the evening and I have been trying to replicate her recipe ever since eating at Gustavo.
...
The Ropa Vieja ($15), another item Patricia suggested, sounded like the perfect dish, served with all of the traditional accompaniments I fondly recalled from my childhood Cuban dining experiences.
...
The Puerco Asado ($17), a slow-roasted pork cooked in a Cuban mojo sauce (this sauce is usually very citrusy and tart, made from freshly squeezed oranges and limes) was another recommendation from Patricia and the Bistec de Palomilla ($16), a garlic-and-lime-marinated steak dish, is one I'm interested in trying the next time my husband and I dine at Gustazo.
