The granddaddy of Drive dining buzzes on summer evenings when its patio – the area's largest – is animated with clamorous chatter. With a couple of counter-culture holdovers (check the graffiti-scratched walls inside and the back gallery/theater combo), it's all about mojito pitchers and a comfort menu combining tacos, 'Cuban sandwiches' and jerk chicken wraps. Go for the jambalaya.

Expect to wait for a park-view patio perch on peak summer evenings. And if you get one, hold onto for dear life – or at least until the next round of drinks turns up.
