Prado Restaurant - Mid-Wilshire: $15 for $30 Worth of Caribbean Cuisine and Drink at Prado Restaurant in Larchmont Village

Though the Caribbean isles are well known to outsiders, Caribbean cuisine remains a hidden gem due to tourists frequently subsisting solely off a paste made from sand, ocean water, and pureed linen pants. Uncover the edible treasure of the tropics with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Caribbean cuisine and drinks at Prado Restaurant in Larchmont Village.

In a cozy, elegant environment, chef Javier Prado whips up tasty Island cuisine fused with Latin- and New Orleans–style heat. Start with fresh corn-off-the-cob Jamaican tamales decadently topped with sour cream, homemade tomatillo sauce, and golden caviar ($9.75 for lunch, $10.75 for dinner) or the sopa de pollo, peppered with fresh vegetables, plantains, and spices ($6.75 for lunch, $8.25 for dinner). Multiple samplers put hard decisions to rest, and hearty entrees include everything from pasta, to steak, such as the beefsteak argentina topped with sautéed tomatoes (starting at $22.75), to seafood dishes, such as the shrimp in Jamaican black-pepper sauce, served with a bevy of sides including plantains, yucca fries, and black beans and rice (starting at $16.75).

Prado's inviting yet elegant surroundings include 18th-century-style painted ceilings. During warmer months, lounge outdoors on the patio tables under flocks of large umbrellas and finish evenings with a mouth-melting dessert of homemade crème brûlée or raspberry red velvet cake.

Prado Restaurant

Chef Javier Prado personifies the American dream. In 1972, he traded the familiarity of his Mexican hometown for the bright lights and chatty celebrity wax statues of Los Angeles. He was initially without money, family, or friends, but soon landed a job working in the Beverly Hills Club restaurant. It was there that he met Chef Jon Bernadoux who took Javier under his wing, teaching him his craft until 1989 when Javier swung open the doors to Prado Restaurant.

At Prado, Javier fuses the flavors of his mother's Mexican cooking with classic Caribbean and New Orleans cuisine. The aromas of spicy black pepper sauces and Jamaican spices stretch out onto the quaint sidewalks of Larchmont Village, teasing the palates of frequent visitors and curious passersby alike. Inside, Javier makes good on the promises of those aromas, completing a spicy fusion menu underneath 18th century-style pastel ceilings painted in celestial scenes. Diners pair selections from the ample wine list with appetizers of jamaican tamales, entrees such as pollo negro—a grilled chicken breast slathered in a spicy black-pepper sauce beneath fresh gems of pineapple—and combination feasts such as the latin sampler platter, which grants tastes of the Caribbean-tinged carioca chicken, mesquite-grilled steak argentina, and spicy shrimp negros.

Always love to dine there sitting outside enjoying the neighborhood and people watching. If you find something you like, you can be assured that it will be just as good the next time. All the dishes I have tried, (about 3) have been so great that I've been discouraged to try anything new. The primary wait person has always been warm,welcoming and efficient. What more could you ask?
