Cornelia Street's Little Havana Is Dunzo

Lauren Shockey
Adios, Little Havana

Little Havana, a Greenwich Village Cuban stalwart that once ruled Cornelia Street, has called it quits. A walk by the restaurant this morning revealed a "For Rent" sign in the window, and all the tables and chairs had been removed from the premises. In some respects, it's not surprising. The quality of the food had gone downhill, and the small storefront had to face competition from flashier restaurants like the Pearl Oyster Bar and newcomer Wong. Still, it's always sad when an old-timer dies. Little Havana, we raise a mojito in your memory.

Little Havana opened in 1998 almost a full year after Pearl Oyster Bar. Cornelia Street Cafe once ruled the street, They were the pioneers. But NEVER Little Havana, even when the food was decent, which it has not been in many, many years.
