This ’60s-era, Formica-countered luncheonette serves tasty Hispanic soul food to a Pan-Latin clientele. Go straight for rice-based concoctions like paella and arroz con pollo—or try a platter of tender stewed meat and a quartet of starchy sides (rice, plantains, fries, and red and black beans). Cool your palate with a mango batido (shake), and on your way out, grab an expertly pressed cubano sandwich for tomorrow’s lunch.
