Frita Batidos is the new Cuban-inspired down-scale restaurant from Eve Aronoff, who operates the decidedly upscale Eve, which is one of my two or three favorite restaurants in Ann Arbor.
We've been twice and enjoyed it both times. The decor (and some of the crowd) is hipster (at least by Ann Arbor standards) but not overbearing. The staff are enthusiastic. The food is as yummy as you would expect. I've tried the Chorizo Frita and the Inspired Cuban sandwich and would gladly have both again, with a slight preference for the Inspired Cuban. I've also had the Especial Batidos, a sort of Cuban shake sweetened with honey, and really enjoyed that too.
In short, highly recommended.
