- For $10, you get $20 worth of dinner fare.
- For $7, you get $15 worth of lunch fare
The culinary crew at La Pequeña Colombia composes a medley of authentic South American and Spanish dishes in a vibrant, inviting atmosphere. Stave off midday stomach grousing with an American-style burger or a savory sandwich ($6.95–$9.95), including the chicken club with avocado, melted cheese, bacon, and tomato served with fries or fried green plantains; or yogurt-dunking gyros packed with veggies and chicken or beef. The dinner menu features traditional Colombian dishes ($12.95+) such as the banana leaf tamal stuffed with pork, potatoes, peas, and carrots; or the flaky whitefish fillet smothered in a creamy coconut sauce. Black Angus skirt steaks come in 14-ounce ($17.95) or 26-ounce ($24.95) slabs, and pair properly with a plato vegetariano served with rice and black beans. Diners can also upgrade plates with Pequeña's signature sides, including fried cassava, sweet plantains, or stewed potatoes.
Colorful paintings and bright wall accents provide a pleasant interruption to La Pequeña's otherwise serene space, which is flooded with light from wall-spanning windows and contemporary fixtures. Long, cozy booths and crisply-set tables make the dining room appropriate for a variety of occasions, from dinner meetings with child executives to date nights with a video conference call.
