Miami-Style (Latin with a twist) dining rooms, a wrap around bar, two seating areas, a private dining room, and outdoor patio seating. When you walk in the door, you will know you are in a special and unusual dining environment. The cuisine is called "Nuevo Latino" and is a splashy, exuberant culinary form of celebrating the heritage and the Latino Spirit.
