Aldopho Garcia's first restaurant in the city might still be his flagship. They serve a hybrid of Spanish, Caribbean, and even some Italian cuisine; as such, it's almost a proper Argentian affair. The cheese plate has been hit or miss for me, mostly because of it's freshness, but the ceviches are standout, as s the Escabeche, Lechon and Zarzula are fantastic traditional dishes you will not find on menus in New Orleans or ordinary steak houses.
Excellent seafood. Desert was too sweet.
This super-authentic Spanish/Latin American eatery is kind of hidden in the Warehouse District, but those in-the-know keep coming back for the seafood specialties that elevate traditional dishes to higher levels while still maintaining their Latin roots. The atmosphere is stellar, and tasting any of the awesome ceviches and other delicious menu items will give the pleasure of a excellent meal as well as a look into another food-centric culture.
Ceviche was good but not special, baked oysters nice, bacalaitos (cod cakes) tasted like hush puppies, slow cooked pork was extremely greasy and had no flavor. The atmosphere was nice, as was the service, but i don't understand the raving reviews about the food. Certainly not worth 25 points at Zagat.
First off: the food was wonderful. The Ecuadorian ceviche was refreshing and had a nice sweetness to it. The yellowfin tuna had a nice sear on the outside and the vegetables on the side were incredible. The place has an outdoor dining feel to it, which was cool, but it did get a little noisy for my liking. Our server was friendly but seemed really busy and service was a little slow.
