Of all the fashionable Broad Ripple joints Nicole Harlan-Oprisu has a hand in (The Northside Social, Village Cigar), none plays on her feminine sense of style or world travels as much as this spicy “new Latin” spot in SoBro. Along with husband Tim and partners Jamie Browning and Nancy and Bill Ficca—a vaunted clan of restaurateurs and bar-owners—Harlan-Oprisu has concocted a colorful Caribbean cruise of a restaurant that hasn’t stopped buzzing since it opened in early 2013. Under ceilings supported by exposed-wood beams, diners in their funkiest casual wear dig into head chef Ricardo Martinez’s already-legendary dishes, such as deeply savory duck sopes, chorizo-rich queso fundido, and slow-braised short ribs with roasted veggies and a hearty potato mash.
