    If “Musick has Charms to soothe a savage Breast” (William Congreve, 1697), food, too, will smooth savage passions or normal grumpiness brought on by hunger pangs. Sandwiches come with big, perfect steak fries. The Cuban is crunchy and filling, with lots of pickle. Appetizers are another way to go, with my favorite being the skewered coconut shrimp: light, crisp, just a tad sweet. Chicken or beef quesadillas are served with a creditable guacamole as well as salsa and sour cream, and Cuban black bean soup, a mix of whole beans and purée, has a vinegar kick. There’s only one dinner-type entrée per se on the menu — those same three lamb chops, but less interestingly presented, with rice and green beans — and a couple of desserts. To buy tickets to a Jazz Café show, call Music Hall or see Ticketmaster. Food is served from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and until 11 p.m. on weekends.

Arturo O’Farrill

Arturo O’Farrill Trio

8pm and 10pm MUSIC ABOUT SCULPTURE There’s an old joke equating writing about music with dancing about architecture, but hold on a minute. Some folks would call those true creative challenges, cross-fertilizations of arts. And music about sculpture? Pianist Arturo O’Farrill’s latest disc, Noguchi Sessions, is inspired by the monumental artwork of sculptor Isamu Noguchi and recorded at the Noguchi Museum in Long Island City last year. Grammy-winner Arturo is the son of the late composer-arranger Chico O’Farrill, and his version of Latin America is as big and diverse as can be. In addition to his originals, the new disc includes a Stephen Foster piece and other standards; his previous 40 Acres and a Burro included an Astor Piazzolla tango and the traditional “She Moves Through the Fair.” Known mainly for his big band work, O’Farrill puts his piano playing out front in a trio format this visit. (And, Arturo, check out our big-ass Hart Plaza Noguchis while you’re in town.)
