i guess they listened to the complaints--namely, the menu/presentation being confusing and the place being decidedly 'downscale' in decor! so now, it's 'PLANTAIN--Latin Raw Bar Restaurant and Lounge'. They added a ceviche bar (inc. oysters at 1.50 each, pruvian mussels, clams on 1/2 shell, salmon ceviche, merluzza ceviche and ecuadorian shrimp ceviche), as well as a full bar. this is in addition to the excellent entrees (suckling pig and jerk chicken are top notch), including a new roti sandwich selection.
also, they have a 9.50 lunch box that includes
-choice of suckling pig, jerk chicken, curry chicken, or curry shrimp
-choice of side (mofongo, bean/ricee/roti/plaintains or moros)
sorry for sounding like a advertisment, but there are so few good chowhound lunches around here!
