We went to Boveda for restaurant
We went to Boveda for restaurant week (review is a bit late) and had a great time. Pork tacos and margaritas were our favorite items.

Great Night Out
Got together on a Sunday with a few friends to try something new. I had only been once before for a quick happy hour drink. (Ps. Great happy hour) This time I thought we would try dinner. The four of us had a cozy booth with room to spare. Our server was friendly and filled with great suggestions. It was a perfect night for sharing and that is what we did. We started with a pitcher of margaritas, ceviche, and smoked salmon. YUM! After that we moved on to tacos. Everyone loved the Carnitas, but my favorite was the pork belly. They look simple, but the flavor is far from it. From there we did the chicken mole, short rib, and braised lamb. I cant remember everything because they just kept coming. Long story short, two thumbs up. Try it!

Great happy hour menu, though
Great happy hour menu, though I wouldn't consider it great value (plates are moderately priced, yes, but you need to order ~3 to get a good meal).

I went for dinner, the menu did not have very many items. The place was a little empty on a saturday night. I loved the decoration. We ordered halibut ceviche which was pretty good. Arroz con mariscos which was my favorite, calamari that was good too and the pescado which I really didnt care much for it. The service was very good. Not sure if I would go back.

The restaurant space is comfortable and trendy. The bar predominates but the chef is first rate. The smoked salmon ceviche is outstanding but could have benefitted by offering bread or pitas with it. The two specialty "tacos"we tried were also perfect tastes and unique..we especially liked the pork belly one. Disappointed that there was no red sangria that night. Very odd. They brought us the white variety instead but not really a good substitute for us. There was a large wedding party nearby so there were some over taxed wait staff who still manged to handle our meal service well.

Great Latin food and music
I've spent the last year in Miami and back and forth from various Latin American countries. I was so happy with this place. First the knew how to make a Pisco Sour which I could not even find in Miami. Second they had a new twist on Chicharon that I had never had that my wife and I loved and man I love all this pork and bacon like. It really is a great blend of foods from various countries in Latin America. As an added perk the salsa is old school, my wife and I dislike more modern salsa. They also have a great mix of other latin music. We will come back to this place fairly often.

Small setting with small plates
While I do think their menu items are rather over priced, we did enjoy everything we ordered. The service was very good with the staff being very attentive. It was very nice to order a variety of times for our table to share.
