Find the right door in either Orange or Bridgeport, and you can walk right into a Latin American paradise. The colors of coastal waters and sunny beaches envelop the dining room, and bartenders serve drinks worthy of the tropical atmosphere: jalapeño pineapple margaritas, South American wines, and 10 kinds of mojitos—including one made with fresh guava.

These slices of the tropics arrive in Connecticut thanks to Ola Restaurant. Here, chefs grill, bake, and will Nuevo Latino cuisine into existence. They define that culinary genre through shareable tapas such as lobster and avocado quesadillas as well as heartier entrees. These meals might star guava-glazed ribs, churrasco strip steak, or salmon caramelized with dark rum and sugar cane, all prepared with the gustatory finesse that earned the restaurant praise from the New York Times.

Guided by a simple mantra?"eat more tacos"?the chefs behind The Taco Truck believe in strengthening their community through neighborhood involvement and by minimizing their impact on the planet. Whether in their mobile kitchen or their brick-and-mortar locations, team members use eco-friendly practices whenever possible. Chefs, for instance, make use of organic and all-natural ingredients, and source their meats from local purveyors that don't use hormones or antibiotics. They also compost all their food waste, which, to date, has kept hundreds of thousands of pounds out of the landfill.

But all these green efforts haven't detracted from the flavor a bit. Chefs make all their salsas from scratch, then use them as the finishing touches for tacos brimming with grilled chicken, marinated pork, and braised beef. They also assemble vegetarian and gluten-free tacos, as well as quesadillas and tortas. Propelled by those hand-held meals and imported Mexican sodas, The Taco Truck has spread across the East Coast, earning recognition from BuzzFeed and Food Network and a 2014 Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor.

Ivan López, head chef and owner of Casa Piquin, dishes up modern Mexican cuisine that fuses techniques he honed in French kitchens with authentic flavors he learned to weave as a chef in Mexico. Ivan ensures the freshness of his vegetables by purchasing them himself before crafting colorful salsas and sautéed fajita bell peppers worthy of being served in an eatery whose name means "House of Peppers." Signature molcajetes—traditional hot lava-rock bowls—cradle marinated and grilled mixed vegetables, meats, and seafood, and traditional dishes are sauced in a choice of five salsas, from a rich, sweet salsa mole made with dried peppers to a piping salsa arbol that lights mouths aflame so molars can lead campfire sing-alongs. Pitchers of sangria cool down mouths, as does flambé-fried ice cream, which is torched tableside.

Recipes give insight into a culture, and chef and restaurateur Barbara Sibley deeply understands this seemingly simple concept. Originally born and raised in Mexico City, Barbara furthered a passion for indigenous cuisines while studying anthropology in college. She then devoted years to researching and collecting Mexican recipes from as far back as the 1600s, and in the process, she steadily became an ambassador for the culinary techniques and ingredients that define authentic Mexican cuisine. In addition to sharing this expertise with CBS New York, the Food Network, and cooking classes, Barbara published a collection of 75 recipes in her cookbook—Antojitos: Festive & Flavorful Mexican Small Plates. If the cookbook is a reference source, then a meal at La Palapa is an immersive learning experience. Barbara drew upon her research as well as her extensive culinary experience when she founded the restaurant, designing a pan-regional menu of familiar staples and little-known gems that the New York Times hailed as "fascinating." Mexico City–style tacos brim with chili-rubbed pork and pineapple or corn sautéed in assertively herbal epazote, and grilled duck breast arrives in a decadently complex Oaxacan mole sauce made with 26 ingredients. Tradition remains of the utmost importance though, and Barbara takes care to hand make everything from cheese to chorizo in-house. La Palapa takes its name from the Spanish word for the palm-thatched shelters that adorn Mexican beaches: an image that complements the restaurant's casual and inviting ambiance. The dining room manages to embrace its roots by prominently displaying images of Mexico City from the 17th century as well as modern sculptures inspired by pre-Columbian ceramic figures. Although the brickwork archways contribute to this sense of antiquity, La Palapa also features a handful of modern touches, including hourglass-shaped pendant lamps, a jukebox, and levitating barstools.
