Craving authentic Latin cuisine this side of the border? You’re in luck. El Sabroso, meaning flavorful or tasty, offers a variety of simple yet delicious Ecuadorian cuisine. From oxtail to roast pork plates, they’ve got a dish to satisfy every carnivore. Don’t be fooled by the barren interior—what they lack in decor, they make up for in flavor. Try the Pernil, a crowd favorite roast pork plate with all the fixin’s. Offering large portion sizes, El Sabroso is equipped to feed even the hungriest of couples.
Just a few blocks away lies the District Tap House, a popular drinks-after-work spot in the garment district. This place will impress any beer lover, with so many international and domestic choices that you might just have to sample a few. If you’re still hungry after your Latin feast, they serve up some of the most elegant bar food snack plates including the crowd favorite—deviled eggs and bacon-wrapped dates. If you’re more of a wine-o, no worries. $8 cucumber gimlet & Manzarita, anyone?
