Chiles.Chimichurri. Jicama. Like any good vacation, this is no place like home. – The Scene
The atmosphere at this Latin American retreat is vibrant with shades of mango, lemon and salmon. Intriguing artwork, hardwood floors and exposed brick walls lend an air of smooth sophistication.
The menu offers nothing "familiar" in the traditional Charlotte sense--no prime rib, no crusted Chilean sea bass. What it does include is enticing selections like the churrasco tres salsas, a grilled chimichurri flank steak cooked to perfection, sliced and served with tiny tortillas and three salsas. The paella Latorre, a sizeable plate of amarillo rice topped with large chunks of lobster, shrimp, scallops and mussels, is sweeter and made with less saffron than other paellas. If you're hungry for a new twist on seafood, seared jumbo sea scallops over coconut rice with a mango mojo offers a surprisingly light mixture of tangy and sweet.
Taste of South Beach! – I have missed Latin food since I moved here from Miami, and was thrilled to find this place. Went to Latorre's on Valentine's Day 2003 and all I can say is WOW. The atmosphere is awesome, the staff so friendly, and the food--QUE BUENO! Don't miss out on dessert...the flan is to die for. Although it is a little pricey- it is well worth it. I highly recommend!
