From March 2004 Dirt Cheap Eats

Pull up a zebra-print-covered bench or lounge on low, red couches while sipping a $4 mojito, apple martini, or tropical rum lemonade at this Latin American bistro. "Happy-hour tasters" include a $5.95 Bolivian potato cake stuffed with beef, cheese, and spices, and $4 fried plantains.

Don't plan on quiet conversation. The loud Latin music makes you want to get up and dance, so some patrons do. The downstairs lounge, with its red mirrored walls, is lit by candles and hanging lanterns. You can also get happy-hour prices in the upstairs bar, where there's a flamenco show at 8:30 on Mondays.
