Work & Class
Hungry locals pack into this no-reservations Latin Ballpark restaurant for a high-energy, casual meal of meat by the pound served with an array of comforting vegetable sides. The low-key establishment gets busy early and doesn't stop until late, roaring continuously with a buzz that can make intimate conversation difficult. But the well-priced, comforting food and mix-and-match cocktails (house-made mixers are available with different spirits) keep the crowds happy. Don't miss the massive attack salad (made with tempura broccoli, asparagus, avocado, spinach, and a preserved lemon vinaigrette), red-chile braised pork, and the fried sweet plantains.
