Finally went for lunch. Simply put the place is awesome. Food is damn good. Decor is very cool & warm in that not cheesey nautical/beach way. Service was almost to friendly and for certain is attentive. We had all the tacos (not a value at $2.50 each or 3 for $7) but very good taste and quality. The veal cheek is deliciously fatty. The rotisserie chicken was delightful & moist studded with rosemary. the gordita's were cute, the salsa that came with it was awesome. Out of the 3 signature salsas that are on the table the verde is the best. The others are ok but nothing special. Lolita's peachy hot one is still the best fruiot salsa I've had in the area. The guac is fresh and tasty but rather skimpy. The chips freshlt fried and warm and are full round 5 or 6 inch tortillas not cut into chips like normal. No opinion on this other than we kept asking for more to use for the guac & gordita's salsa. cold cucumber salad was refreshing and really the only thing we used our chopsticks for. yes they set tables with fork, knife & chopsticks. Also instructed to fill out "order card" sort of like a dim-sum place that has no cart service. They are working out this system still as we just filled out one card with the entire tables order instead of one card per guest which some guests have been doing. Also on the table is a hard platic blue card with the dragon-fly logo that a table can stick into the card holder if one needs attention and anyone from the staff will see to your wants. Cute shtick. Overall another great addition to the area and another example of port chester's food-centric stronghold over the county's good eats. By the way: BEST Churros I have had outside of Mexico City. Served with essentially a small dish of thick hot chocolate but not the nasty sweet kind that is the trend-just a perfect side sauce. Also the ice cream was above par.

PS...custom made sangrias...called clarico. Order a bottle of wine and for an extra $10 they make it into a pitcher with fresh fruit, brandy, etc...It made for a great extended lunch.
