Graffiti Restro Cafe and Wine Bar
Started by an Alabaman who learned to cook in New Orleans, Graffiti is now legend in gritty Jacó. It's tricky to find the nondescript space, however, as it's hidden in an out-of-the-way strip mall. Determined diners will be rewarded with an artfully tagged space and a colorful chalkboard describing specials like chipotle passion-fruit-glazed chicken wings. Even the booze here is creative, with mash-ups like the Aloetini, a blend of vodka; hand-muddled cucumber; and fresh, lime-sweetened aloe vera.
