Q. Looking for a fun spot for a birthday dinner for a trip next month. How’s  Havana 1957? We don’t want touristy! Where can 14 guys go for Cuban on a Friday night? We decided trendy would be too complicated.

Mike , Los Angeles

I am afraid that Havana 1957 is best known for its overpriced mojitos and sunburned tourists. If you want to stay on South Beach, you can go classic grunge with the iconic  Puerto Sagua (700 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-673-1115) or, a few blocks away, the recently renovated  David’s Cafe (1058 Collins Ave.; 305-534-8736, www.davidscafe.com), which also has a location just off Lincoln Road. Either would work for affordable, authentic and delicious Cuban basics. My favorite dish is rope vieja (“old clothes”), a great shredded beef stew. Both have beer and wine and menus in English.
