Robert Mitchum's Last Meal New York 2007 - La Taza de Oro

Ditch digger, hobo, and eventually Hollywood leading man, Mitchum took many film noir roles, including in Night of the Hunter and Cape Fear. He also had a yen for marijuana, and served a stretch in a California prison farm as a result. Accordingly, we're serving him pot roast, in the form of onion-and-pepper-laced ropa vieja ("shredded clothes") at La Taza de Oro, one of the last vestiges of Latin cuisine along Chelsea's Eighth Avenue. Like Mitchum, the venerable Puerto Rican café is a survivor.
