  • Maria Mentiras Bar & Grill
    The passionate chefs at Maria Mentiras Bar & Grill intensify the Spanish flavors in their steaks, seafood, and chicken with the kiss of an open flame. Exposed brick walls, subtle lighting, and a long, smooth bar table set an elegant scene for diners to start their meals with golden-fried pork cracklings or plantains topped with shredded steak and pork. The menu's smoked, barbecued, and seared entrees include everything from fried red snapper to grilled skirt steaks cooked to meet high school prom dress codes. Beef rib "lollipops" glazed with housemade barbecue sauce playfully spin Latin American cuisine, while the traditional Columbian bandeja paisa impresses palates with grilled steak, chorizo, and pork belly served alongside sweet plantains and fried eggs.
