Food and drink
Latin flavors fused with Asian techniques. The myriad sauces boggle the mind in their complexity. The wine list is heavy on Mexican varietals as well as Argentine Malbecs.
The Peking duck daikon tacos are a hit, as is the chicken tandoori with cilantro and mango salsas.
It's a bit more formal than one would expect from a Latin fusion restaurant. Still, that doesn't mean you have to dress to impress to eat here. Wrought-iron screens create a feeling of privacy and anyone on a date will definitely feel inspired to keep the romance alive here.
Service is excellent and fast and the staff are knowledgeable about the food and wine.
Near Grand Central Station on 3rd Avenue. Not exactly a culinary epicenter, but it's easy to get to.
Dinner for two can get a bit pricey at about $100. Lunch is naturally less expensive. Opt for several small plates if you're worried about the price.
