Coppelia: Chef Julian Medina's New, Mostly Cuban Diner

Coppelia, the spanking new, mostly Cuban diner from Chef Julian Medina of Yerba Buena and Toloache renown, is one of the those New York City restaurants for which we're always grateful. For one thing, it's open all day (and, soon, all night), so you can stop in any time for a quick bite, or a mid-afternoon refuel of coffee and an amazing Pichet Ong sweet treat (more on that later), or a massive, full-flavored, prepared-with-care meal. Coppelia is centrally located, on 14th Street near Seventh Avenue, convenient when we're off on one of our shopping and/or art viewing and/or goofing around adventures in the Chelsea, West Village, Meatpacking, Union Square area. And Coppelia is moderately priced (not crazy cheap like the REAL Cuban diners of our Morningside Heights youth, true, but still, not bad for today's New York City), it's casual and comfortable, and is swarming with a friendly, good-looking, eager-to-please staff. Admittedly, then, we were rooting for Chef Medina (and Chef Ong) to deliver the Nuevo-Latino-comfort-food goods with Coppelia even before we sat down. The good news is, for the most part, Coppelia totally comes through. For more info, read the full review on my blog: http://www.glenwoodnyc.com/manhattan-living/...-cuban-diner/#more-1067
