Latin - Looking for good somewhat upscale place to go

Guy | Apr 26, 2004 12:17 PM

Seemed like the Latin craze of a couple years ago has turned into the current Japanese trend. That said, i am hard pressed to think of good Latin places to go to. I went to Patria when it open and like it but it has gone downhill since. Went to Chicima when it was around but thought it was overpriced, bland, and was one of those places that is geared towards parting you and your money as quickly and efficiently as possible. Been to Dos Caminos and Son Cubano and was only mildly impressed. I like Miracle Grill, Rocking Horse, and Suenos but i want something a bit nicer. From what I’ve seen on the boards, seems like Pampo and OLA are duds. Please don't find me something better than Mesa Grill. I went a while back, thinking how much i would like it but was disappointed on all fronts. I like bold flavors but nothing stood out besides the bill. One other consideration is that i don't want a place that blasts you with music, as seems to be the trend at many of these places.
