Luz has a modern look and none of the forcedly festive joie de vivre you might associate with nineties-era Pan-Latinodom. The menu reads like a greatest-hits list of the Latin American larder, and for starch fiends, it’s hard to abstain from the sweet, lush arepas, filled with melted cheese and dabbed with cilantro pesto, or the trio of toothsome empanadas, both accompanied by a refreshing watercress salad. But the heartier dishes are also amply rewarding: Peruvian-style rotisserie chicken is nicely spiced with burnished skin and juicy meat that can almost be willed off the bone.Brunch
