23 Avenue A

When my girl and I walked into this small eatery we were expecting your typical Latin fare with a twist—but typical it was not. The vibe was cozy but chic and the décor minimal with close attention to detail.

El Baron Restaurant
8641 W Washington Blvd
Culver City, CA 90232
There are tons of Cuban, Mexican, Brazilian, restaurants that can fulfill cravings when we miss mami’s cooking, but have you ever thought of the Latin countries that don’t represent as hard on the restaurant scene? El Salvador is one of those places, and it was refreshing to sample a little taste of home from this wonderful country.

250 Broome St.
NY, NY 10002
This humble looking cevicheria was definitely a nice gift to the Lower East Side. As soon as I walked in I felt like I had traveled to some random local joint on the beach in Mexico. If you chat with the owner, Allan Feldman—businessman turned chef—you'll learn that all the furnishings in this restaurant have a story. You may also find out that theyve run out of some dishes, since everything is made to order with fresh, local ingredients.

Listen up ladies! Super Bowl is soon approaching and with all the excitement of the new commercials, parties, and oh yeah, the game, there's also the concern with all the nasty fatty food commonly reserved for the big game day. Pepperoni pizza, nachos, buffalo wings—I already feel like I’ve gained a few pounds just talking about it, yuck.
