If we’re settled on Puerto Rican food, depending on the size of the group, I might suggest switching it up to our other Puerto Rican option, Santiago’s. It has more of a Roadfood vibe; a little more low key and homey. And the food is as good or, in some dishes, better than El Bistro Latino. The only drawback is, Santaigo’s is really small, so a bigger group wouldn’t work well there. Let’s get a final head count and we can make a decision.
For the record, either of irisarbor’s suggestions is within reasonable travel distance, if all else falls through.
