Fodor's Expert Review Nacional 27

$$ River North Latin American

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(melted cheese) alongside ceviches, tacos, and empanadas. It's best to come with a group if you want to order the slow-cooked pork Cubano with roasted 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.
