Mi Salsa Kitchen is a Cuban diner in the Lower East Side. The cooking is Cuban comfort food. It’s nothing fancy, but if you’re Caribbean, it’s just like home. New York Cubans have really embraced it.
There is often live Cuban music on Wednesdays, Fridays and weekends. S0me of NYC’s top Cuban artists play there. People move the tables to the side and dance. To see who is playing, check Facebook @MiSalsaKitchen. They don’t usually publish who is playing until the day of.
Mi Salsa Kitchen became NYC’s hot new Cuban spot in 2021.
