The Latin-tinged menu at this hidden gem offers plenty of comforts. In the morning, pair fair-trade coffee with the plato tipico, a breakfast plate of free-range eggs topped with vibrant red salsa, refried black beans, slices of avocado, salty cheese and impeccable fried plantains. The daily soups and juicy skirt steak—along with rice, guacamole and beans—are the highlights at dinner, and the star of desserts is the hulking double-chocolate cake that’s home-style good.
