There is a public parking garage for $1 per hour one block from Yuca. Entrance is on 17th St at Convention Center Drive or on Pennsylvania Ave. I use that garage whenever I am on Lincoln Rd.

YUCA, an acronym for Young Urban Cuban-Americans, is widely known as being South Florida's original upscale Cuban restaurant featuring Innovative Nuevo Latino Cuisine or as the locals call it "Nuevo Latino." This style of cooking includes traditional Latin ingredients such as a plethora of textures, colors, and flavors that when combined creates a cuisine that is unique to anything offered outside of the Caribbean and Latin America.
