A Blend of Tradition and Innovation

Mamajuana Cafe, founded in 2006 in New York, brings the rich culinary heritage of the Caribbean and South America. Chef Ricardo Cardona, a pioneer of Nuevo Latino cuisine, curates a menu that blends time-tested recipes with exciting modern twists. This translates to dishes like Tostones Mar & Tierra, where crispy plantain chips are paired with succulent churrasco, shrimp, and aji verde sauce, and the Yucca Crab Cake, featuring crispy yuca-crusted crab meat with creamy avocado and honey mustard sauce.

Seafood lovers can savor the Ceviche, which features fresh seafood cured in citrus juices, or the Gambas al Ajillo, classic garlic shrimp cooked in butter and white wine.

Explore the "De La Parilla" section for a more substantial meal. It offers grilled options like Churrasco Salad and Sirloin Steak. The Mar y Tierra option allows you to customize your plate with a choice of lobster or shrimp, creating a truly decadent experience.

Beyond the Plate: Cocktails and Ambiance

The restaurant's namesake, Mamajuana, a Dominican rum-based infused liquor, will surely be a highlight. Whether you prefer classic cocktails or adventurous concoctions, the bar caters to every taste.

The restaurant's ambiance promises to be just as captivating as the food and drinks.
