Julian Medina’s Latino mini-empire (Toloache, Yerba Buena) adds a Cuban diner to the mix. Spruced-up luncheonette with checkerboard floors, cushy booths, long marble bar. Pull up to a stool for all day (and all night) breakfast, like huevos habaneros with rice, ham, sweet plantain, and poached eggs in salsa. Daily specials tour around southern climes, from Cuban skirt steak Mondays through shrimp mofongo Sundays.
