My wife and I and another couple came into NYC for dinner and a show. We found this restaurant through ask.com and the menu looked interesting. Looks can be deceiving. We started with the shrimp in hogao sauce. It consisted of 4 miniscule shrimp in a bland tomato sauce. The main course for 3 of us consisted of the peruvian chicken that was tasteless. It was accompanied by bland rice and a decent plantain.The other entree was the grilled panela glazed pork chop, black eyed peas, corn, peas and lime. It was undercooked and so tough that you could have patched a tire with it. The only good part of the meal was the bread. We voiced our complaint to the server and she did take 10 percent off the check which we found off we were entitled to anyway since we tickets to a show next door. Our mistake was not speaking to the manager.
