A slew of mojitos, margaritas and sangrias draw students, artists and old-timers, who tumble through the breezy space’s veranda doors and onto the narrow outside patio. But it’s the flavorful Latin food that distinguishes Yuca Bar from run-of-the-mill cantinas. Nibblers can choose from an extensive assortment of tapas, including tuna ceviche served in a coconut shell or a trio of tantalizing empanadas. Those with heartier appetites can have their pick of more substantial dishes like churrasco skirt steak or guava-barbecued short ribs—or, better yet, sample a variety of meats with a colossal carnitas platter.

My friend picked this spot for her birthday dinner and first thing I love about it is that it's very easy to find.
Upon entering, we were greeted and seated very quickly. My two friends ordered red sangria and I had to order a "NOJITO" ( which was very good I might add) because I can't hang.
We preceded to order beef tacos and shrimp quesadilla for appetizers. They both were simply delicious, you can control how you want your beef cooked if you order the beef taco and the guacamole that came with the shrimp quesadilla had a bit of a spicy kick that adds to the food.
The main entree was this meat platter for 2, came with ribs, chicken, sausage and skirt steak. As well as a bed of spinach, yuca fries ( THEY WERE REALLY GOOD) and rice / beans.
The shrimp salad was also interesting, it had a vinaigrette that had coconut in it.
Over all, take your friends here and order the entire menu.
