A former Chilean president ordered so many steak-and-cheese sandwiches, the combination became a regional specialty that shares his name: Barros Luco. Opened in October 2009, this midtown spot serves up the Chilean hoagies, along with empanadas and hot dogs for good measure. You can order your sandwich to go at the walk-up counter at the entrance, with your choice of chicken or steak on a soft, white, handmade roll. Those who wish to dine in can proceed upstairs to one of the three booths or handful of two-top tables surrounded by copper etchings of indigenous Chilean characters and a flat-screen TV. While cheese, tomatoes, avocado, and mayonnaise are the primary toppings offered, the Chacarero—with cold string beans and mild banana peppers, along with melted mozzarella cheese and an avocado spread—makes for one of the more original options. Empanadas, although greasy, tout a perfectly flaky crust, and the Dinámico frankfurter, with mustard, sauerkraut, and a sweet salsa, plays up the two cultures. A side of crispy sweet-potato fries, however, feels very American.
