    The Moqueca de Bahia, yeah, get on that. There's scrimps, octopus, and hearts of palm elbowing each other for space in a garlicky, coconut broth. So good.

    The usual tortillas and empanadas get punched up courtesy of lobster and port wine reductions, and their specialty Yucajito (coconut rum, pineapple juice, and mint) will transport you to the tropics. Read more

    Weather nice out? Beat the brunch crowd and grab a table outside. Get the Yuca Benedictos for a refreshing Latin spin on a classic dish!

    The mojitos are on point.👌 And I strongly recommend ordering the shrimp quesadilla, and if you still have room left in your tummy, try the skirt steak.

    Ended the night at this great spot. The yuca burger with the yuca fries , churasco , and paella were all delicious. The latin music was a perfect touch.

    Arepa Benedict (with the ham!) is one of the best brunch options near Tompkins Park. Not a bad Bloody Mary either.

    Awesome deals: Tuesday happy hour, prixe fixe brunch, and regular beer deals ($3 for a Modelo on our last visit!). The bar area can get pretty loud during the weekend, so be prepared to yell.

    The queso fundido and octopus were both good appetizers, but the carnitas platter for 2 was just a bunch of ok tasting meat. The Yuca Tai cocktail is sweet and delicious!

    Tapas plates seem pricy at the beginning but they are big portions do well worth it. BBQ pork ribs and plantain with pulled pork.. Both delicious.

    The food was great, but they don't take reservations for parties of 10 or more for some reason that makes no sense. We waited 2 hrs for a table on Friday night. It was still worth the wait!

    Make sure everyone in your party arrives at the same time, otherwise you get a side of sass and nowhere to park your rear until all are near.

    Great atmosphere but lots of the dishes were surprisingly sweet. Stick to the savory stuff (no coconut lime dressing) and you'll love it.
