Nacional 27 Restaurant Review

: Nacional 27, the Nuevo Latino restaurant from Lettuce Entertain You, was on the forefront of a trend; years later, it remains on the culinary (and cocktail) cutting edge. The lusty menu is loaded with Latin favorites --- flaky empanadas stuffed with smoked chicken or carnitas, shrimp adobado skewers --- as well as innovative options, like ahi and watermelon ceviche with spicy red wine vinaigrette. From pork tenderloin with nopales and sweet potatoes to chimichurri-crusted filet and blue nose grouper with tomatillo salsa, twists abound. But it’s the Latin small plates, including boniato and plantain croquetas or barbecue lamb tacos, we gravitate toward. Feeling adventurous? Do not miss the culinary cocktails --- they're a good precursor to salsa dancing on Friday and Saturday nights.
