Couple pieces of wonderful news for you today.
One: looks like you can finally set that coat of yours on fire.
Two: there’s a handsome new Latin spot you’ll want to try this weekend.
Welcome to Los Americanos
, a new retro-ish corner of late-night empanadas and mezcal in Tribeca,
If the diner from Seinfeld
were relocated to 1950s Havana, it would have looked like this. Red
formica two-tops opposite a small, colorfully stocked bar—all housed among wood paneling and South
American kitsch. Jerry and George would’ve hatched the contest in a brown leather wraparound banquette
over midnight tacos al pastor.
A lot of countries are represented here
. El Salvador by pupusas. Venezuela with arepas. Cubano sandwiches. Argentine
skirt steak and chorizo. All washed down with a Miraflores
—a Peruvian pisco/egg-white cocktail
with a hibiscus that you’ll... also eat.
There’ll be some much-appreciated alfresco seating soon, but for now, we see you holding court with a
group of revelers in that king-size banquette. It’s the only one in
, right in the back. Breakfasts of cachapas and house-blended coffee will be happening (and
available from a takeout window, if that’s your bag), but you want to be here during the mezcal hours. The
The tiny-umbrellas-are-okay hours.
