Nacional 27 Review

Named after the 27 nations south of the U.S. border, this pan-Latin restaurant serves a smattering of cross-cultural dishes from the Caribbean, Costa Rica, Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina. The menu is designed for sharing, with tapas like tostones (crispy plantains) and roasted corn fundido alongside seviches, tacos, and empanadas. It's best to come with a group if you want to order the slow-cooked pork Cubano with coconut rice, black beans, and plantains. The circular bar has its own following, independent of the food, if you're looking for innovative cocktails, and after 11 pm on weekends, the floor in the middle of the dining room is cleared for salsa and merengue dancing.

    very disappointing. went there last night for a double birthday party. the food was just not good. the only thing i would ever pay to eat again was the weekly special dessert. everything else i would not eat even if it were free. it's a nice dance club. and the drinks are pretty good - if a bit expensive. ($10 for a cocktail.) our server was nothing special. fine when there, but not often there. and did not know how to deal w/ a large table.
