Location Description:

The wait might be long, and service might be slow, but at Latin American tapas restaurant Macondo, on the southern edge of the East Village, hurrying isn't the point. On weekends, the place is packed with brunch-goers enjoying two hours of unlimited mimosas with their huevos rancheros and pancakes, and the chic comida de la calle in which Macondo specializes glams up noshes from a variety of Latin cuisines--churros con chocolate, arepas, empanadas, tacos, and patatas bravas--for a wide array of meaty and starchy finger food. In addition to bar snacks, Latinized brunch food, and a few dishes that approximate entrees, Macondo offers numerous cocktails highlighting liquors from around the Spanish-speaking world, such as tequila, mezcal, cachaca, and pisco, as well as a Brazilian juice bar. Hip yet kind servers will laboriously explain the conceptual pan-Latin menu in great detail, but they mean well, and Macondo is an easy place to enjoy. --Diana Clarke
