There's no correlation between domestic oil production and prices at the pump. Pretty important to understand this given that republicans are blaming the current gas prices on Obama's reluctance to drill domestically.

Can Cuban food get any better than this? Not in New York, at least. The wait: I've been here somewhere on the scale of a dozen times. The only time I didn't have to wait at least 15 minutes was when I went at 8 a.m. (They used to open that early; they probably saw I was the only one there and decided to move it back to 9 a.m.) TIP: if you want to get your meal on while in queue, you can hit up the Cafe Habana To Go right next-door and start with an appetizer of grilled corn, sans line. The seating: Probably the most cramped place I've ever been. When it's crowded (and it always is), you've really got to squeeze by people. Get a booth if you can, and try to avoid sitting against the wall leading up to the bathrooms, as these are the worst tables in the joint. Really, if you have the option, turn them down. You will get bumped and shoved in your seat as people swarm past; even worse, one of the tables is right near the discard bin for dirty plates, so you will probably get splashed, too. The food: So why put up with endless waits and cramped seating? Because the food is ridiculous. Their Cuban sandwich is the best I can imagine. The grilled corn is disgustingly delicious. I've had the roasted meats, the tacos, the enchiladas, the huevos, etc.--rest assured, it's all going to be awesome! If you want something vegetarian, consider the Tlacoyo de Tres Marias, which I ordered on a whim once and was awed by the rich and complex flavors of humble but great ingredients. The drinks are usually strong and tasty here, so get a Dark and Stormy or a Mojito. The service is also really on-point, and the servers are friendly, every time. I doubt you'll ever feel like you're just waiting for the food to come out. Cafe Habana is a fun, lively restaurant whose heavenly food more than justifies the long wait and cramped seating options.

I had another great meal here today, maybe the best yet. They've opened up another dining room to the right, so there's more space and less of a wait. We also got a good table with plenty of space. I didn't feel crammed like I sometimes do. It's also nice to get hot tea poured right away after coming in from the rainy cold. The food was superb as usual. Consistency is the major strength of this place. We ordered pork soup dumplings, shao mai, vegetable noodle soup, and beef and scallion pancake. The pork soup dumplings have a delicious, distinct salty and savory flavor. The shao mai are filled with a sticky rice mixture and are heartier than I expected. The vegetable noodlesoup is probably the best soup you can get here because it's just chock full of vegetables like bok choy, several kinds of mushroom, sliced bean curd, etc. The beef and scallion pancake is crispy and flavorful, made complete with a mouthwatering, sweet and savory hoisin sauce. The two factors keeping this place from "excellent" are the service and the cleanliness, though neither are so miserable to warrant a poor rating. The first thing you're likely to notice here is that your table is wet or sticky, or that there are crumbs or other little morsels hanging out on your table. I understand that it's a very popular restaurant, but I think most people wouldn't mind waiting another 10 seconds so that their tables can be properly cleaned before they're seated. This has been a problem every time I've gone. The other recurring problem is that it's hard to get the attention of the servers, especially when trying to get the check. By the time we were ready to leave today, the restaurant was half empty, and the servers were doing small tasks in the kitchen area. Even when one of them came out to do something, they never even looked my way for almost 10 minutes. We also never got a tea refill the entire time until we asked for it with the check. I also get the impression that the servers are usually in a bad mood by the manner in which they talk to us and drop the plates on the table while looking elsewhere. Improvements in these areas would make for a stellar restaurant, though I guess they have little incentive to improve since they're so popular and operating over capacity almost every day.

The first thing to know is that you order at the back, at the poke assembly bar. There should be menus lying around. I ordered the Seoul Poke, one of the signature bowls at PokeLICious. It has tuna, cucumber and jalapeño slices, seaweed salad, tobiko, and a couple of other things I can't recall. You get to choose a base of either brown or white rice. There are several sauces/mayos to choose from, but the Seoul Poke is topped with a spicy Korean sauce. Overall, the food was excellent. The interior seems somewhat unfinished at the moment (e.g., the floor), but the seating and decoration are nice so far. I will definitely go back. I've heard there are plans to have PokeLICious operate during the day and then switch over to KSFC+Beer Closet at night (can't beat Korean chicken and beer), which may explain why the Beer Closet signage is still on the door.
