    2. Partner and executive chef Horacio Rivadero has created an extensive Pan-American menu made to share and divided into several sections - antojos, crudo, tacos, "around the table" and supper. After beginning with freshly made cheese bread, diners can choose from the likes of corvina ceviche topped with grapefruit sorbet, cast iron octopus served on a roasted eggplant puree and a duo of smoked pomegranate barbecue and grilled lamb with butternut pumpkin salad.

    3. There's a happy hour at the bar till 7 PM with $5 wines by the glass plus a menu of bites like foie gras mousse and a croquetas sampler. After that, you're able to order off its bar bites menu, which includes the same small plates as happy hour - minus the discounted wine - or opt for the regular supper list.
