Lolinda may be best known for its steak, but it would be a mistake to skip over this Mission hot spot’s small plates. Pair a plate of traditional empanadas with one of the restaurant’s famed ceviches—Lolinda offers two options, ono and mixed seafood, and each is tangy, refreshing and topped with buttery bits of fried corn. Or indulge in the vigorón: melt-in-your-mouth cubes of pork belly, complimented by a bright jalapeño slaw. Two floors of low-lit, cosmopolitan cool make this an excellent space to grab a bite before or after a night out. Don’t let the restaurant’s spaciousness fool you, however: make reservations, or expect to wait.
