Every prince knows that the most effective way to wake up a sleeping beauty is not with a boring kiss, but with a single potent drop of fiery green chili. Awaken tired taste buds in royal fashion with today’s deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of wraps, salads, and more at Leña Latin Grill, located on West 35th Street in Midtown Manhattan.
Leña Latin Grill creates made-to-order, Latin-infused wood-grilled eats in a casual setting, swiftly serving your meal and simultaneously spurning the hectic nature of most fast-food joints. As they peruse the restaurant’s seasonally driven menu, diners are encouraged to create their own delish dish starting with a choice of wrap, salad, or plate (prices vary from $7.25–$12.25). From there, culinary crafters can choose between chicken, steak, fish, or tofu before topping it with one of Leña’s taste-bud-tempting sauces, such as pico de gallo, pickled onions, or the spicy smoked chili pepper. Adding a side of coconut rice ($2.25), sweet plantains ($2.50), or hearty black beans ($2.25) will result in the most delightful Latin combination since the Gloria Estefan single “Cogito Ergo Samba.” Less-DIY hungers, meanwhile, can be sated with one of the pre-approved dishes, such as the steak salad ($9.25), sprinkled with Leña’s barbecue sauce plus a generous portion of grilled corn and avocado.
Leña Latin Grill’s scrumptious breakfast options also get morning commuters and insomniac vampires started on their ante meridiems with a sweet corn and queso arepa ($3.25) and salsa-paired potato empanada ($2). Energy-cravers, however, can reject their usual morning foam dome of coffee and imbibe one of Leña’s fresh fruit juices ($3.95) instead, which turn tongues tropical with flavors such as pineapple, passion fruit, blackberry, and watermelon.

Leña Latin Grill
The sound and warmth of a crackling wood-fired grill drape across Leña's sleek, honey-hued wooden floors and circular tables. As the early-morning sun creeps across rough-hewn walls and racks of kindling, crispy potato and beef empanadas rest beside cool glasses of mango, pineapple, and honeydew juices. Chefs begin with a blank canvas during lunch and dinner, giving diners the choice to adorn plates with Latin-inspired chicken, steak, or fish heated by crimson fingers of flame. A septet of sauces calls upon flavors such as blue cheese and smoked chipotle while drawing nervous glances from collectors of rare napkins, and 10 additions, such as avocado and coconut rice, add healthy accents to feasts.
