Booty's Street Food Restaurant Review

: A former video store in the Bywater neighborhood has artfully morphed into a handsome corner eatery softly lit with plain hanging light bulbs. The food is somewhat exotic, but approachable, and mirrors the sort of fare one might buy from a street vendor or a food stall in locales as remote as Korea, Nigeria or Nicaragua. Everything is served to be eaten with your hands, or from a cone or on a stick. That means El Salvadoran pupusas share menu space with Venezuelan empanadas, Korean beef and lettuce wraps, and even Brazilian cheese and Greek vegetable kebabs. Communal seating promotes food sharing and camaraderie while enjoying a selection from about a dozen wines by the glass, and a full line of craft cocktails. Insider’s tip: Try the “Bywater Bomber” made with rum, pineapple, orange juice, bitters and a secret ingredient: rose water. For dessert, indulge in fried Italian donuts with powdered sugar. Booty's interior is rustic and eclectic, with two bathrooms that double as exhibition space for rotating local artists.
