THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED San Salvaje Restaurant Review

: Chef Stephan Pyles is behind yet another unique restaurant, this one called San Salvaje (pronounced San Sal-VAH-hay, the name means “wild saint”). The menu lives up to the place’s moniker, while the open kitchen invites diners to join in the fun of watching the food preparation. With big windows overlooking the arts district and colorful walls decorated with a combination of large crosses and Day of the Dead skulls, the vibe is as thrilling as the cuisine. Executive chef Michael Duke keeps the menu interesting with dishes like cazuela de pollo, bean feijoada (pork cheek), humita with sweet corn and the lobster and avocado tacos. Desserts include donut-shaped Peruvian picarones laced with anise, and the tres leches cake reminiscent of the theme of San Salvaje. There's a small wine list, but the cocktail roster is more impressive with Pisco taking center stage.
