Are you one of those people who every summer sit around drinking good rum drinks and say, as if you really mean it: WE REALLY SHOULD GO TO CUBA?

Lets face it, we all are.

Thankfully for us, CUBA LIBRE is bringing back their POP-UP paladar dinners June 12-14 (see photos below for just how great they were last time)  with 6 dinners over 3 days with Chef ALAIN, the second Cuban chef in the US since the embargo (the first one cooked at their winter pop-up). The Pop-Up Paladar involves 4 courses for $45 (a sweet deal if we ever saw one) and while we think you should make your reservations now, we do have a dinner for 2 to give away for June 13th (that’s a Wednesday) at 8:30pm.

You obviously want this. So, to enter to win, leave us a comment telling us WHAT your dream vacation would be and why. We’ll notify the winner by COB Monday. Cool? Cool.


Join Chef Alain as he brings his recipes from his Cuban restaurant (Doctor Cafe) in Havana to DC for a collaborative 4 course dinner with our Chef-Partner Guillermo Pernot.

Chef Alain is the second Cuban chef Cuba Libre and Chef-Partner Pernot have brought to cook in the United States, and one of the first to cook here since the Cuban embargo.

Call 202.408.1600 to make a reservation for this special event!

still need some more persuading? check out the amazing photos Shauna took at the last pop-up they did this winter. Mouthwatering:
