Calle Ocho is so different from any other place in the neighborhood, you'd think you walked in from the Flatiron District instead. This is big, fun, and loud restaurant with great cocktails (mmmm, mojitos!) and even better food.
Even on a cold winter night, you feel the heat generated from the ambiance and the food. I love the beefsteak and the sopa de mariscos, but that's only touching the surface. This is one of those places where, when you come back again, you don't know whether you should try something new or if you want to have what you had last time.
