From Our Editors
Bolivar Restaurant and Lounge, which takes its name from that famous revolutionary figure, brings Spanish, African, and native South American elements together. Colombian flavors color Peruvian ingredients, and Venezuelan influences make Bolivar's dishes even more unique. Ceviche, grilled skirt steak, and sautéed salmon with creole sauce are but a few of the specialties savored in a moodily dim dining room/lounge caught between sponge-painted walls and a glowing, crimson bar. Tapas step in with a taste of Spain—fried calamari, beef empanadas, chorizo. Then there's the bandeja paisa, which almost became Colombia's national dish. It's a large, oval tray heaped with 13 ingredients that must all be present—and have their homework completed—if the dish is to be considered a true bandeja paisa. These ingredients include red beans cooked with pork, plantains, fried eggs, pork rind, black pudding, and avocado.
