The owners of Vicente’s Cuban Cuisine are readying for the debut of their upcoming Midtown restaurant Bolero Latin Cuisine. The South American-influenced eatery located in the former Mid City Grill space at 51 W. Forest Ave. is poised to open in early December, according to general manager Roberto Caceres.
The restaurant will begin invite-only openings on November 30 followed by wine dinner on December 2, leading up to a public opening on December 4, Metro Times reports.
The menu draws on flavors from several distinct countries in South America including Peru, Chile, and Argentina. Diners can expect dishes such as fresh ceviche, pescado sudado (seafood steamed in tomato-based broth), and shredded duck empanadas. The restaurant will also offer four different styles of shareable Spanish paella.
Bolero features a full bar with Argentinian and Chilean wines as well as Peruvian pisco and — Vicente’s specialties — mojitos and sangria.
The restaurant is currently accepting reservations for its a six-course wine dinner on Noel Night. The evening’s menu promises grilled Argentinian skirt steak, paella, lobster bisque with lobster skewers, and more. Tickets are $90. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a seat.
