Barbakoa Restaurant Review

: Riotously colorful Barbakoa, a Jerry Kleiner venture, is a perennially packed hub for Nuevo Latin fare that’s meant to be shared, such as platters of tacos as well as guacamole, salsa and ceviche trios. There’s paella, too, plus a tasting menu for a minimum of 2 people with 4 different sizes available. The creative cocktails are of note as well.
