Across from Bar, between Sol de Cuba and the little burger place. Large, outside patio is reminiscent of being in Cali with a burning "wood" fire pit and heat lamps. Inside is comfy cozy decor with a very extensive bar area perfect for casual dining. One of the proprietors owns Cafe Adulis around the corner.
Food was o.k. - not their fault whatsoever, it's just that I've been spoiled at some of the best Southwestern places in the Southwest itself. Homemade corn bread with honey butter was excellent and the variety of appetizers and interesting ingredients throughout made for a nice menu. Sitting in a booth near the indoor fireplace was a plus as was the extensive wine list, tequila menu and the "fun" drink menu.
A very welcome addition to New Haven's dining scene.
