El Techo de Lolinda Restaurant Review

: With lush tropical cocktails, imaginative bites and expansive city views in all directions, El Techo is a fiesta in the sky. It's the rooftop bar perched atop popular and usually packed Argentinian-style steakhouse Lolinda. Many guests start at El Techo before continuing Phase Two of their meals downstairs, but why not just stay up here above the fray? Less dark, less noisy, more casual and offering far more elbow room than its downstairs partner, this lofty aerie feels like a friendly private club. Its ample drinks menu includes nearly thirty tequilas, mezcals, rums and piscos, plus south-of-the-border classics such as peppy Cuba Libres (made with authentically super-sweet Mexican Coca-Cola) and bright, refreshing caipirinhas. Topped with perky paper umbrellas, El Techo's piƱa coladas are extravagantly creamy and long-lastingly tall. Big hearty bites include ceviches, soups, sandwiches and exotica such as plantain patties and kale quesadillas. Still hungry? Put on your party pants and indulge in the large, playful snow cones known as grandizados. The rooftop is tented and heated, so you can raise those glasses happily even on rainy days.
