Creative Use of Bold Flavors and Energetic Atmosphere
Tucked into the Excelsior Hotel on the Upper West Side and directly across from the American Museum of Natural History. Known for the creative use of bold flavors and a very energetic atmosphere, the chef-owners offer a menu that they hope reminds Miamians of Little Havana. Five cerviche varieties, tapas, steaks, a huge selection of fresh seafood, and a broad array of menu items influenced by the cuisines of Cuba, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Spain, Venezuela and Costa Rica make for a memorable dining experience. And their weekend brunch comes with eight kinds of complimentary red and white sangria.
I’ve ran seven marathons since moving to NYC eight years ago, including New York and Chicago several times. I’m very involved with the local running community as a run leader—helping runners plot new routes and assisting out of town guests with questions and local fun. I began running in 2014 and will continue to do so as it is my happy place. I’m a career dancer who also runs a local tour company that specializes in walking tours of New York neighborhoods, as well as advising about what to do and where to eat.
