Critic’s Notes

This hip storefront mixes Latin styles in artful small-plate offerings and fun cocktails. Armando Gonzalez puts pizzazz into creations such as the octopus with housemade chorizo and spiced garbanzos and the guajillo-braised goat with farro, yuca, and plantains. Butter cake with cerveza ice cream and fig salsa brings cool comfort.
