Enjoyed our first time at Congri. Was excited to have cuban espresso and cortadito again. Reminds us of Florida. Enjoyed the soup, congri, Cuban sandwich, Ropa Vieja, the cod stew. Love also supporting a local business and not a chain.

We heard very good things about this restaurant from friends. When we got there we found only one vegetarian entree (although there are veggie sides). So no lunch for us. Instead we tried one appetizer and one dessert. Both were very good. Their coconut flan...More
