Latin American fusion cuisine and a weekend nightclub from Lettuce Entertain You.

Our Review

Lettuce Entertain You fuses the cuisines of 27 Latin American and Caribbean nations. Chef Francisco Bilchez uses ingredients like chorizo, yuca, and chipotles in creative and visually appealing ways. There are a variety of ceviches to start with, plus "Latin tapas" such as a lamb taco, chicken empanadas, and boniato-plantain croquetas. Entrees range from steaks and seafood to a "tasting" of caramelized Latin vegetables. Sides include coconut rice and truffled plantains; drinks run the gamut from Brazilian caipirinhas to Cuban mojitos to Peruvian pisco sours, all of which pack a punch. Staff are knowledgeable and aim to please, but if you want to eat in peace, best finish before 11 PM on weekends, when the center of the room is transformed into a pulsing dance floor with a DJ spinning merengue and salsa (there's a $10 cover charge after 9:30 PM).
