Owner Jose Acevedo watches the front of the house, standing post behind the short bar, overseeing service and talking soccer and food with his regulars. In the back, chef Ulises Santiago and his crew cook up seasonal menus from Latin America, changing the globe-trotting lineup several times a year. This casual, comfortable place has been on a slow build, winning customers by word of mouth, keeping them with friendly service and excellent food.
