La Perla Negra
Latin-influenced hot spot opened by a supergroup of restaurateurs: Salsa Limon’s Ramiro Ramirez; Andrew de la Torre, who for years ran the Cuban-inspired restaurant and bar Embargo; and Imran Khan of Black Rooster Bakery and Lunch Box. Here, they zero in on lively and fresh coastal cuisine. You can build your own ceviche, for instance, choosing from such ingredients as salmon, ginger, and cucumber. Heavier dishes include the Domenicana, a shareable sandwich stuffed with ham and flank steak. Cocktails sometimes take a while but with good reason: They're made with freshly squeezed juices and small-batch mezcals.
