This order-at-the-counter joint is devoted to Latin American empanadas. Assembled ahead of time, the turnover-like pastries are cooked in tabletop ovens. Except for the beef-based carne option, filled with green olives and hard-boiled eggs, the menu strays from tradition with such fillings as Brie, pesto, and shredded coconut. Good bets are ham-and-Parmesan and the Popeye, stuffed with spinach, goat cheese, and golden raisins.
