In the glow of flickering candles and a fireplace encased in glass, a vibrant crowd throws back fresh fruit cocktails and nibbles on ceviche soaked in lime with hunks of avocado or shrimp cóctel in citrusy tomato juice. This is the swank sibling to the adjacent Café con Leche, and while the classic Cuban and jibarito sandwiches are as good as they are next door, head straight to hearty entrées such as tender pork chops given an al pastor makeover or juicy skirt steak slathered in a sauce of roasted arbol chilies and pumpkin seeds and crowned with a tower of impressive onion rings.
