Cuba Libre (NYC Restaurant) Review - New York City Restaurant Reviews. By ERIC ASIMOV Published: February 2, 2. SOME restaurants are so loud, and the acoustics so bad, that you can spend an entire evening saying nothing but: ''What? What'd you say?'' Tiring of that, you can always nod your head sagely, smile or frown, pretending to hear while following the unspoken cues as best you can. Or you can give up on talking entirely and lose yourself in the food. At Cuba Libre, a two- month- old pan- Latin restaurant in Chelsea, it's possible to be quite happy with the last alternative.
The combination of loud voices, hard surfaces and raucous music that sometimes has the waiters dancing in the aisles is enough to make you want to scream, or shut up entirely. But while the food is not always consistent, some dishes are so good that you simply want to eat and sigh.

The restaurant itself is the unlikely result of a partnership between Bob Ianello, who owns Umberto's Clam House in Little Italy, and Tom Vaccari, who owns Trois Canards and Tello's in Chelsea. Cuba Libre, a leap onto the pan- Latin bandwagon, might simply have been a business move, but the chef, Rodney Mitchell, who previously cooked at Calle Ocho on the Upper West Side, has clear talent. An appetizer of oysters ($8. Mr. Mitchell perches the oysters on smoky collard greens and serves them with a mildly spicy salsa. The resulting combination is superb.
Another appetizer, a lobster empanada ($8. Peruvian ceviche ($7. Two side dishes that serve equally well as appetizers are arepas ($4. August, and yuca fries ($3. They come doused with chimichurri, a blend of olive oil, parsley and garlic that is a perfect foil. Aside from the noise level, the cramped quarters are another annoyance. This is particularly bad in winter, when thick, puffy coats compete with humans for seats on the banquettes or hang over the backs of chairs, only to be stepped on by waiters as they squeeze through the narrow spaces.

I found a round of mojitos ($6 each), the Cuban equivalent of a mint julep, made with rum rather than bourbon, to be an effective means of dealing with this problem. Among the main courses, my clear favorite was the pork tenderloin ($1. Mr. Mitchell's winning compositions. The thin fillets are juicy and full of flavor, rubbed with ancho chili for a little jolt that stands up to the sweet side dish of mashed plantains and the hearty black bean sauce. A fine piece of tuna was glazed with honey and red wine ($1. I liked a chicken relleno ($1.
Dominican shellfish stew ($1. But a crisp fried snapper with rice and an avocado salad ($1. I tried only two desserts - - chocolate mousse trimmed with dulce de leche and flan ($6 each) - - and neither was noteworthy. When the waiter asks about dessert, my suggestion is simply to say: ''What? What? What'd you say?'' He'll eventually get the idea.
