The original Escape Latino is on Hobart Ave. in the Bronx and now the team behind it has opened a second space on Main Street, New Rochelle, just off Rt. 95. The menu is a tasty mix of Latin and Caribbean cuisine. We have visited the New Rochelle location twice and were able to taste: delicious Clams Casino; their Empanada Trio stuffed with spinach & cheese, beef and chicken, served with mango sauce and chipotle mayo; a good fresh Octopus Salad; and a loaded Seafood Paella with shrimp, clams, calamari, mussels and lobster on a bed of yellow saffron rice. Easily sharable.
It is charming, child friendly space highlighted by a cozy bar, bamboo lined walls and banquette seating. Friendly staff, too...www.escapecuisine.com
