Old Havana is expected to rise again soon. Not in Cuba, of course, but — where else — at the mall.

The fourth branch of Havana Central, a Manhattan-based restaurant chain is set to make its Roosevelt Field debut sometime in late fall, occupying the former Modell's space, near Skinny Pizza. The bi-level space, designed to evoke pre-revolutionary Cuba, will have 1950s artifacts, outdoor dining in good weather and live salsa music, as well as dancing.

On the menu: empanadas ($3), ropa vieja ($17.50) and Cuban flan ($6). Mojitos and sangrias made tableside, too.

Havana Central has a location in Manhattan and in Yonkers.
