Imagine this at, say, 4:31 in the morning.
The long-promised extension of the dining hours is finally occurring at Coppelia, which aimed to be a round-the-clock pan-Latin diner when it opened April 4 of this year.
Rudimentary but delicious are the fish tacos at Coppelia.
Now, when the bars close, you can thrill to chef Julian Medina’s Peruvian-Chinese fried rice, Mexican huevos rancheros atop Cuban Moros y Christianos (black beans mixed with white rice), and, for hearty eaters, the Argentine mixed grill called parrillada.
For dessert, there are goosed-up versions of Latin pastries, via Pichet Ong, including a pleasantly soupy and pineapple-y take on tres leches cake.
