Tonight marks the official reopening of Jeffrey Chodorow's Latin fusion restaurant Asia de Cuba. The original incarnation of the celeb-magnet shuttered suddenly back in 2011 at its original home in the Morgan Hotel, but now it's back, in the Noho space that used to house the original outpost of Alex Guarnaschelli's Butter. The long, tall communal table that dominated that space has not made a return, making the restaurant seem more adult and less like a bar. There are approximately 100 seats split between a row of banquets near the restaurants entrance, seating by (but not at) the bar, and finally a large dining room in the back. The room is more modern and less kitschy than the original, which frankly was showing its age toward the end of its original run.

Peruse the dining room above and the menu below.
