It's not the biggest idea that the Berge Brothers (of Magnus, Weary Traveler Freehouse and Natt Spil) ever had, but it's nonetheless intriguing. Located in the Cardinal Bar’s former cloakroom, Cortadito Express gets its name from an espresso and milk drink popular in Cuba. Besides the cortadito, the limited menu of Latin-inspired dishes includes ceviche de corvina, meat and potato croquetas, and churros with chocolate for dipping. The Ricardo, a twist on the classic Cuban sandwich, bears the name of the Cardinal's owner, Ricardo Gonzales. Carryout from the walk-up window is available daily from 3 p.m. (10 a.m. on the weekend) until 3 a.m.
