Jump to: Reviews | Coyle Reed and The Amulet of Destiny

Today’s Groupon follows South American flavors all the way to Market Street’s Destino Nuevo Latino Bistro, where $15 gets you $30 worth of southern hemisphere dishes and drinks. Citysearchers adore Destino, naming it the Best of San Francisco for Latin Food and Small Plates four years in a row.

The chefs at Destino understand that no one wants to feel intimidated by meal size, which is why they've created renowned, big-flavored small-plate dishes. Down the robust tastes of Destino’s ceviche accentuated a la Peruana (with farmed tilapia, $10), a la Mexicana (with ahi tuna and organic mango, $12.50), or Mixto-style (featuring yellowtail, roasted manila clams, and calamari, $11.50). Flex your international cravings with the combination of Pato Saltado and Mofongo (Caribbean-encrusted duck breast with a sweet plantain-bacon cake, $14). For eyes as large as appetites, the risotto de quinoa con calabaza ($18) will please vegetarian tastes and the shredded chicken baked into the lasagna de aji de Gallina ($18) will make you rethink the classic Italian layered treat.

Destino’s comprehensive wine list and cocktail selections will complement your continent-jumping mouth with elegant refreshment. Stop by Destino to learn how to take ceviche without digging through the sock drawer for your expired passport and a belt clip full of chocolate bars made to look like money.

Reviews

SF Weekly toasts Destino with high praise:

  • Finally, and most importantly, it takes a certain intangible that speaks of a love of all things culinary, of a house where hospitality is the rule. It's a vibe, in other words, as unmistakable as rain, and I was feeling it quite thoroughly at Destino.

Citysearchers have named Destino the Best of San Francisco for Latin Food and Small Plates four years in a row and give it four stars:

  • I've gone to Destino many times and I'm never disappointed. All their small plates are creative, distinct from on another in flavor profiles, and frankly, fantastic. – jvandyk, Citysearch
  • Service was professional, efficient, and we never felt rushed even though my friend and I were there for more than 3 hours. – ebayfoodie, Citysearch

Coyle Reed and The Amulet of Destiny

Destino may remind you of the 2002 action-adventure TV series Coyle Reed and The Amulet of Destiny. The series concerned newspaper reporter/adventurer Coyle Reed, whose inheritance, a magical amulet that foretold the destiny of its owner, set him on a course for adventure. The series was canceled when it failed to live up to the excitement of its premise. Here are the synopses of the show’s only three episodes:

“The Adventure Begins”: After inheriting a magical amulet, Coyle receives a premonition of his destiny: He will spend the weekend cleaning up a highway adopted by the Lions Club. While disposing of soda bottles thrown by careless drivers, Coyle stumbles upon a dark secret involving the mayor, but taking his amulet’s advice, he chooses not to investigate.

“Fire In The Sky”: The Air & Water Show is in town, but Coyle’s amulet reveals that destiny has different plans for Coyle: His girlfriend of three weeks wants to talk about Coyle’s messy apartment. While cleaning up his socks, Coyle misses the scoop of a lifetime when a hero dog flies an airplane (shown off-screen). Coyle wants to rush to the scene, but his amulet reveals that he will instead make a frozen pizza, which Coyle decides is not a bad idea.

“The Lost Treasure of Omaz”: Coyle’s on assignment in South America and hears rumors of a temple made entirely of gold. But when terrorist commandos overtake the small village where he is staying, the amulet makes Coyle’s heroic fate unavoidable: He is to be used as a bargaining chip and flown back to America in exchange for weapons and a helicopter for the commandos.
