A space as narrow as a pressed cubano doesn"t stifle owner Lydia Sharpe"s passion for Cuban cooking. The most cursory knowledge of the cuisine on your part will melt her stern exterior--if you want her to get downright motherly, order the insider favorite moros y cristianos. This side dish of black beans cooked in white rice has fragrant cinnamon and smoky pork nuances, adding sparkle to entrées such as a plump fillet of roasted salmon or pork medallions with a tart tomatillo sauce. The place may be small, but the flavors have soaring dimensions.
