6 Love It
Save it




There’s a raffish, multiculti charm to the whirring overhead fans, live music and chili-pepper garlands at this low-lit spot. The tapas are consistently tasty, with a zingy tuna ceviche leading the way. Tuck into chayote salad with lime dressing, chicken roasted in a banana leaf, Brazilian pork stew or grilled seafood on greens. The cocktails—like an exotic kiwi roska—are fruity and well-mixed, and perhaps the best reason to come. The Latino libations are listed on a bright-yellow wall near the bar, but you’ll get caught in a mosh pit of mojito drinkers before you can squeeze your way to it.
