Hard to believe, but it has been six years since my last review of Zafra. We have continued to patronize this restaurant for the same reasons that impressed us on our first visit. Everything is fresh, homemade and simply delicious. Ten dollars buys you a pitcher of virgin sangria-bring your bottle and enjoy this wonderful mix with fresh fruit.
On our last visit we had the following:
Arepas- different with the fennel touch
Cuban Tamal- other than my mother's, never had better
Soup-Cream of caribbean pumpkin, cubed cheese, roasted cacao nibs, crème fraîche-my favorite
"Venezuelan breakfast"-shredded beef, white rice, black beans and 2 arepas
Picadillo (Cuban sloppy joe)
All excellent.
Dessert- tres leche- I was not thrilled with the merengue, the cake was good
Flan- perfect
Her rice pudding is also excellent (not available that day)
Zafra is not big in square footage. Zafra's abundance is in the rich flavors and diversity of it's Latin dishes. Love it!!

Several weeks ago a bunch of us decided to try the suckling pig at Zafra. We were told that we needed at least 6 people and five days advance notice. We made our reservation two weeks in advance. They called to confirm our reservation the day before. Nine of us arrived only to be told by a waiter that there was a mistake and there would be no suckling pig. Several of us travelled over an hour to get to the restaurant. What a disappointment.

The food is horrible. They should hire a new chef. Period. We know food and this does not qualify as one.

2 of us enjoyed 3 app's and an entree and everything was very good. By 7 pm people were waiting on a Saturday night (as they should be for good food), but the waits were not long as plenty of tables outside. We will be back.
