Accepted/Not Necessary


Camaradas takes its working-class view of comraderie seriously. Rough-hewn wood, corrugated metal, bare brick, and bare bulbs constitute the interior. The Puerto Rican / Pan-Latino cooking neither rises above bar food, nor truly aspires to. Panini-style churrasco skirt steak and Cuban sandwiches are serviceable; traditional mofongo is tarted up with red peppers and mashed into a wooden goblet. More emphasis is put on the beer list. There are bottles and drafts representing some dozen countries: Munich's Spaten, Brazil’s Xingou, Belgium’s Delirium. As the evening progresses, the scene gets raucous, with the mainly Nuyorican crowd joined by a smattering of next-generation Spanish Harlemites. In warm weather, the front windows open to the street, where customers spill out in response to some smoking-hot salsa music that’s inevitably turned up the heat.
