This swank Latino-cum-Caribbean outpost has money in the bank with owner Lucy Brennan's trademark cocktails, making room for the kitchen to experiment with the menu. Although the decor can be a little too Pulp Fiction meets sexy South Beach for some of our finest tastemakers, the kitchen, which has seemed shaky at times, seems to be on a mission to prove its stripes with new-ish chef Lyle Jost. A juicy pan-fried rainbow trout arrives simply dressed in its own salty skin, a dollop of smoky romesco sauce on one side and garlicky mustard greens on the other. A velvety, understated corn custard served as a cool vehicle for cumin-spiked corn relish. (AV)
