If you’re looking for a place to start a night out, Alma de Cuba on Walnut is a good choice. Try to get one of the cushy booths, and order a few ceviches. Or if you want something more substantial, get the skirt steak with black beans and tomato escabeche. They’ve also got a popular Happy Hour, complete with jazzy music and mojitos. And for the full trifecta, head across the street to Ashton Cigar Bar after dinner.
