Weekends are popular at this Ecuadorian spot—that’s when Ecuadorian bands take the stage in the dining room, and apparently some people like their dinner with a side of pan flute. Us? We’ll take the quieter weeknights, when we can really focus on the pinchos, three skewered and perfectly grilled shrimp drizzled with a sprightlychimichurri, and the llapingacho, your choice of sausage, steak or chicken (go for the thick, grilled steak) flanked by potato pancakes topped with a rich, savory peanut sauce.
