Maura's Kitchen is casual and cozy, but the food--roast pork, stews, fish and empanadas--is big and bold. Latin American flavors color the menu, which intermixes tapas such as yuca fries with full-size entrees including pollo a la brasa--Peruvian rotisserie chicken. Choose from three types of fresh ceviche, or pair shrimp with sauteed steak for an irresistible surf-and-turf combination, like a charming mermaid geologist.
