Lena Latin Grill's got a gimmick: A list of main ingredients, extra ingredients, sides, and sauces that you must put together to make a meal, whether it be in wrap form, salad, or full-blown plate. Sure, there are 12 pre-set combinations (four in each category), but that's the coward's way out. So, gird your loins and prepare to do some thinking. Among the sauces, we loved the garlicky green chimichurri, while the smoky chili pepper (chipotle) tasted right out of the can. The fried chicken--a cutlet, really, with no bones--is better than the grilled, and the platters better than the gluey wraps. After you've been here a few times, you'll probably go off the grid completely, mixing side dishes with abandon.
