Cuba Libre DC

My stomach is full right now, and my heart is happy.  I met up with my dear friend, Anthony, for dinner at Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar.  Our original plan was to meet at Habana Village in Adams-Morgan.  However, they are not open on Tuesdays.  I was in the mood for Cuban food, so…

Global Eats: Hungary
