Nuevo Latino cuisine in Naperville, the second in a blooming national chain.

Our Review

Naperville is embracing this branch of the Nuevo Latino chain restaurant, which is also a lounge and cigar bar. The room is polished -- dark stone floors, linen-topped tables, sheer curtains draping the circular semiprivate booths -- but high energy (Latin music booms). The extensive menu includes a dozen small plates like mango barbecued ribs, Brazilian fried calamari, and citrus-marinated hearts of palm with jicama. Large plates are grounded in tradition: churrascos (char-grilled beef skewers) come with sofrito rice, black beans, and chimichurri sauce, while the mahimahi is plantain-crusted and served with a mango mojo and coconut rice. Despite their parking-lot view, the outdoor tables draw a crowd. The lounge serves a limited menu till midnight Sunday-Thursday and 2 AM Friday and Saturday.
