The Low Down


Know Before You Go: Don't fret if you're not up for a hefty meal; you can satiate a light appetite with reasonably portioned side orders. We like the dainty potato- and shredded beef-filled empanadas.

Save Money: As the street-facing window broadcasts in brightly colored ink, there are some killer lunch specials. Among them, a $5 ribeye that’ll feed you for two days. Call ahead to ask about current offerings.

What to Drink: There’s no booze on the menu, and you can BYOB without a corkage fee. If you’re looking for a refreshing non-alcoholic libation, try a fresh juice. Our fave is soursop; a tropical fruit that combines the flavors of strawberry and citrus with the creamy essence of banana.
