1492 New World Latin Cuisine
As you sit or ethereally levitate amid 1492's artful tortilla wrap of moody chandeliers and onyx-hued tablecloths, nosh on complimentary chips and homemade salsa while perusing an authentic menu. Slap your sleeping stomach awake with the 1492 queso, a bubbly mix of beans, spicy beef, guac, pico de gallo, and sour cream ($8), or an order of chicken-tortilla soup ($5) before moseying on to ambitiously sized entrees of skirt-steak-topped poblano peppers ($22) stuffed with chopped shrimp, zucchini, squash, and monterey jack served over cilantro queso or Venezuelan-shredded brisket ($15). 1492 also offers selections off a rotating specials menu. This summer, sample pineapple-espresso pork ($14), sided with chipotle mashed potatoes; fresh lump crab, tilapia, and shrimp ceviche ($12) topped with fresh avocado and pico de gallo; or an updated version of the classic Cuban sandwich served with Latin fries ($10). Less experimental eaters will appreciate classic Tex-Mex combo platters such as the tres amigos ($12), a cheesy taco and enchilada duo plus a beef taco.
