El Llano

This small, cheery room is packed with Colombian tchotchkes (as well as a stuffed armadillo hanging on the wall), which gives the place a festive vibe. What is it celebrating? Chicken, and the fact that it turns this blank-slate-of-foods into a dinner that’s plump, juicy, golden, perfectly charred and endlessly flavorful. Tender brisket immersed in mild tomato sauce, crisp fried yuca, and a strip steak with fresh and lively chimichurri grace this menu. But they’re just backup. For once, the lowly chicken is the star of the show.

Brasa Roja is the BEST! I eat here at least twice a month. The Matrimonio combo cannot be beat.

Their new chicken empanadas are to die for! I literally ordered 50 for a potluck and they were all gone! The decor is very pretty too!
