This refreshingly casual Pan-Latin restaurant deals in eclectic regional small plates. Grilled octopus with potato and celery represents Ecuador and tomato-sauced albondigas (meatballs) wave the Mexican flag. Although the salvaged furniture in the artsy space doesn't scream Argentina, the tostones do. The long bar is great for gorging on a Cuban panini or hamburger, but a table may be better to enjoy the filling feijoada–a hearty Brazilian main dish featuring a succession of bowls filled with black beans, roasted pork, bacon, plantains and other sides. The wine list contains some interesting, gently priced options, though a mojito (or two) is a more fun option with fruit flavors that rotate seasonally.Recommended Dishes
