Best Friday-night special - 2000
Sabor Latino - CLOSED
When this popular South American restaurant moved from its longtime location on West 32nd Avenue to West 35th, it also improved its wine list and expanded its menu. Most important, it instituted paella nights on Friday and Saturday. On those days, $44.95 buys you a bottle of Chilean wine plus paella for two. And not just any old paella, either: Sabor Latino starts with a base of moist but not sticky saffron rice, then adds layers of chicken, orange roughy, shrimp, mussels, scallops, a spicy imported Spanish sausage, red bell peppers and a touch of lemon. It all combines for a wonderfully romantic meal shared by two people who really care for each other -- or really care about paella.
