This cozy, comfortable place serves Mexican and Salvadoran specialties. We recommend the fried plantains, banana-leaf tamales, and pupusas.

There is a good reason why Argentina-born chef Reina Morris is well-regarded for her exemplary baked goods. Her empanadas are a bite of heaven with wonderful savory treasures encased in delicate, flaky crusts. Both the texture and flavor of the Lomito Beef sandwich is as good as it gets, with perfectly cooked tenderloin slathered with the house signature chimichurri sauce on a soft baguette. Meanwhile, the desserts for which regulars save room will be glowing in the pastry case in all of their glory, so before you get those alfajores for later, consider Quattro Leches cake, or Pionono roulade with fresh strawberries.
