This place has delicious food. I enjoyed everything that I ordered. This not your typical restaurant. They suggest that you don't order entrees but treat everything on the menus as tapas. They also don't have any gas in the kitchen. They only use an open fire so they bring each item out once it is ready. This makes for a great group experience. I would also highly recommend asking the waiter what each item on the menu is as it is pretty difficult to know what you are going to get based on the menu item names. All in all this place is amazing! A little expensive but definitely a place where you can treat yourself!

Unassuming but the food they turn out from that wood fired oven (no gas lines!) is pretty incredible! Great find!

Awesome upscale, updated Mexican food. Super tender grilled octopus, delicious arepas, made with house-ground corn. Great guacamole, luscious vegetables. Lively, yet casual atmosphere. Great drinks round out a smallish but inspired menu.
