Owner Nils Westlind has done an amazing job of taking some of his childhood favorite dishes from growing up in Colombia and elevating them to dishes that you will not forget. The menu reflects Caribbean, Central and South American dishes that will wow your taste buds. The decor & music will take you out of the United States, and gives you the true feel of an elegant evening at a restaurant somewhere in Latin America.
A few nights ago, Chamere and I had the pleasure of working with Nils to host an influencer dinner party with some of our fave foodie friends. The menu was amazing, and highlighted some seriously incredible bites for everyone to try. Full disclosure – this was a paid partnership, but as you guys know by now, we are selective with the establishments we work with, and choose places we really love. So, with all that being said, you can expect our honest feedback and recommendation of the following dishes.
Now let’s dive into that menu!
We started the evening with a champagne toast to set the mood (pictured above), which was followed shortly after by this delicious cocktail, the “Cadejo Blanco”.
Flor de Caña 4yr Añejo Oro Rum, Plantation Pineapple Rum, Boomsma Clooster Bitter Liqueur, Mango, Chimichurri Greens (Cilantro, Oregano, Parsley, Jalapeno), Lime. Now, if you know me and Chamere, you know we love a spicy cocktail (Chamere loves spicy EVERYTHING), and this was PERFECT. Not too over the top – but delightful. Needless to say, I had more than just one.
We tried the delightful “Goat & Toast” which is Ronero’s version of Ropa Vieja.
This dish includes goat, sofrito, goat cheese and is served with grilled foccacia. This dish was delightful. My only suggestion is that it be served with a tab bit more foccacia for sharing.
Next, was a gorgeous ceviche.
Tuna, passionfruit, red pepper coulis, mango and rice chicharron. The flavors were delicate and flawless. I wish I would have got to try more than 1 bite, but naturally this dish was gone pretty much instantly cuz everyone jumped on it!
Onto a delightful pansito.
Chipa pan and manchego cheese served with a sweet potato butter. These things blew me away. Sweet potato butter was a great idea. Such a delicate flavor. Yum!
Now – for the main courses. First up, Picanha. Swoon!
This baby was killer. A perfectly cooked and juicy 16 oz. Churrasco style rump steak, served with rice, farofa, Brazilian vinaigrette and rock salt. Man I’m drooling just thinking about it.
Next was the stunning Pescado Frito.
I think this was probably my favorite dish. This Colombian style dish is a whole red snapper fish fried, served with coconut-cola rice, fried plantain, pickled mango and grilled orange. So many delicious flavors going on here, and it’s totally worth the garlic breath.
After all those delicious dishes, we still saved room for 2 different desserts. Here’s the Alfajores.
Dulce de leche flan, cocoa shortbread, blackberries and marigold blossom. This flan was out of this world. So creamy and luxurious. I was a huge fan. The presentation was just so stunning too. Almost too pretty to eat…. (almost).
And lastly, we tried the Bolinho de Chuva.
These warm buttermilk donuts were so delicious. Served with Canella and 68% chocolate.
This was just a snippet of the menu that changes frequently, with different items coming in seasonally. We hope to show you more of this incredible menu at a later date. So stay tuned!
