Chef-owner Alex Garcia (Calle Ocho) rolls out his new concept today on the Upper West Side: a laid-back restaurant serving American and Latin comfort food. The sprawling menu covers hits from both north and south of the border: grilled cheese, burgers, tacos, paella, and what Garcia claims is "NYC's best Cubano," served for lunch, dinner, and brunch. There are cocktails and boozy shakes to drink in the 120-seat dining room or 30-seat lounge dubbed the Cabanas. The restaurant opens today; see the menu below and scope photos in our slideshow.
