Piedmont branch of the acclaimed Gourmet Ghetto tapas bar forsakes the mother ship’s Spanish cuisine for an array of Nuevo Latino dishes, with middling results. Menu standouts include a moist, spicy pollo asado (baked chicken), creamy fried plantains, and several tasty tacos and empanadas. Get the pastel imposible (flan and chocolate cake) for dessert. Impressive wine and cocktail list.
