Fodor's Review

This pioneer Little Italy restaurant dramatically refreshed its look and menu, adding to its appeal to hip neighborhood residents, long-time fans, and first-time visitors. Urban-industrial decor infuses fire pits on the expanded patio and a sunken communal cocktail table ideal for people-watching. Favorites from chef-partner Deborah Scott—pipian-crusted brie, squid-ink pasta—star alongside executive chef Jason Maitland’s global Latin plates to share ranging from

Peruvian-style street food and ceviche to exotic offerings like Flaming Hot Cheetosans, crispy pigs-ear strips with lime zest and cotijia. Desserts are South-of-the-border favorites, too, like warm churros for dipping in Mexican hot chocolate. Expanded hours make room for lively early and late happy hours. A dog-friendly patio area help make this a favoite destination for the locals.

Not my favorite of the Cohn group. I've given this place 3 tries and I still can't find something that wows me. Heavily spiced, not presented well, tough meat. Go to the Prado at Balboa Park instead.
