I know nothing about authentic Cuban food, but we enjoyed the menu references to Desilu and old Lucy cast members. The food was decent to my palate and the prices were reasonable. We want to try some more of their dishes.

I had been dreaming of shrimp ajillo when friends suggested that we go to a restaurant new to their Brookland neighborhood. Little Ricky's tickled me from the concept-- Lucy and Ricky's son maybe running a restaurant? Also, since the Omega restaurant closed, I hadn't been to a Cuban restaurant in DC. Yes, the shrimp ajillo is fabulous! The black bean, perfect. Hope to go back again and again.

Initially was very excited for the chance to have authentic cuban food in DC. Having eaten Cuban food in Miami for years, I guess my standards are high. We started with croquettas. They were delicious, but were served with sweet and sour sauce? who serves croquettas with sweet and sour sauce? Really destroyed an awesome homemade treat. The sauce would be much better on the side so you could choose to use it or not. The drinks were strong and cheap, but nothing special. The biggest letdown was the main course. While the tostones and maduros were good, the picadillo, black beans and rice were all wrong. The picadillo was inedible. After one bite of what tasted like boiled ground beef with no seasoning I was done. The beef was grey with no "wine sauce" as they claimed. My portion did not include and olives either. My plate was covered in grease I am guessing from the maduros which didn't help either. The black beans tasted like beans and water. What happened to at the very least salt? The main dishes are over priced for what you receive. With all that said, Go here for maybe a fried appetizer and drinks, but nothing more.
