Under its former name Che Tano, Los Tanitos made an indelible impression on the Latin American neighborhood where it resides. Perhaps that's because, while its operating philosophy is simple?serve quality food honestly and courteously?the flavors of its Argentinean food are as complex as a word search written in hieroglyphs. Two decades under the Che Tano name proved that much. Even though Los Tanitos has passed into the hands of a new generation, the game-changing cuisine remains the same.
The best place to look for proof is still its menu. Sandwiches and caprese salad, sopas and empanadas, and grilled Angus steak and chorizo?the options go on almost endlessly. Which means the menu holds something suitable for every taste and some light reading if conversation dies.
Peruvian recipes shine at Mr. Karbon, where chefs take fresh seafood and other ingredients into flavorful breakfast, lunch, and dinner favorites. Ceviches cure fresh fish in lime juice with corn and sweet potatoes as well as a choice of marinade, such as Peruvian red pepper, Peruvian yellow pepper, and olive sauce. Saltados showcase chicken, seafood, and veggies in a traditional Peruvian served with French fries. Other classic dishes include causas?yellow potato puree with tuna, chicken, or shrimp?and tiraditos?thinly sliced white fish in a choice of sauce. Italian and Spanish influence color the breakfast menu, from smoked ham sandwiches layered with cream cheese and papaya chutney to butifarra sandwiches, lomo saltado, and fresh fruit smoothies plucked straight from the restaurant's smoothie tree.

The chefs at Del Sur Market aren’t trying to come up with new and crazy toppings for their dishes; they’re trying to enhance the dishes’ natural flavors with simple, complementary sauces and sides. The result is a fresh-tasting menu of artisanal dishes, ranging from the nuanced flavors of the cheeses on the house mozzarella bar to the grilled rib eye rubbed with rosemary sea salt and topped with kalamata olives and red potatoes. The chefs aren’t afraid to make unique choices when pursuing a dish’s natural flavor, however, and so they wrap grilled filet mignon in pancetta and serve it over cremini mushroom risotto and incorporate pears and gorgonzola into ravioli nestled in a marsala wine sauce. They can also recommend boutique vintages of wine that pair well with the dishes' natural flavors, creating well-rounded gourmet meals for both lunch and dinner.
