This venue is closed.

In not-so-subtle homage to Ricky Ricardo, this is a supper club with a salsa beat, curtained booths, sharp dressers, and fifty different kinds of rum. With that kind of inventory, it's no wonder the lively crowd is guzzling mojitos and daiquiris, barely pausing to refuel with tostones rellenos, Peruvian shrimp chowder, and seafood paella.


Pre-fixe menu: dinner, $17.
