Macondo Restaurant Review

: Set in the old LoSide Diner space, this Nuevo Latino eatery is outfitted with enough timber on the walls and floor to heat a small Latin American capital. Which makes the ambience quite cozy. Also helpful are the cocktails; created by mixologist Junior Merino, the list is highlighted by the frozen Aguacate + Mezcal, which is like drinking tequila-laced avocado. The menu moves all over the Latino map, hitting the mark more often than not. The cocas (or flatbreads) are good for sharing (the Buenos Aires is toppled with tender chunks of steak and the Colombiana is laced with hummus); the squid ceviche is further flavored because it’s served in its own ink, wading in a martini glass; and the oven-roasted quail arepa is a tower of inventive taste, as the quail, figs and manchego cheese blend nicely together.
