Love him or hate him, no can accuse famous restaurateur Jeffrey Chodorow (FoodParc, China Grill and many, many more) of being too subtle. Asia de Cuba, located in the Morgans Hotel, is an ode to excess, an over-the-top spectacle of the highest degree. Designed by Philippe Starck, this two-story behemoth features a 25-foot-tall, illuminated picture of a flowing waterfall, which ends at the base of an incredibly long communal table. Back-lit, glowing white curtains separate the other tables, surrounding pristine white banquettes that seat suited men and high-heeled ladies. As the name would suggest, the kitchen mixes Asian and Latin American influences. Lobster pad Thai, Cuban barbecue chicken and hoisin roast duck all share space on the menu. Penny pinchers need not be discouraged by the substantial prices; the daily happy hour in the bar and lounge area (5pm to 8pm) offers $8 specialty cocktails and small plates, while diners get 50 percent off all bottles of wine during Sunday dinner service.—Keith Wagstaff
