Clams and chorizo   

Dama is chef Antonia Lofaso’s homage to her Puerto Rican heritage. The dining room and breezy patio have an Old-World Caribbean feel; the dishes reflect the restaurant’s tropical vibe, pulling flavors from all over Latin America, like bocadillos with black calamari, or crispy pork shank with avocado crema. The cocktail program is devoted to rum, with sidelong glances at Tequila and mezcal, while wine manager Taylor Grant stocks her list with exciting new-wave offerings from Spain, like Comando G La Bruja de Rozas, or Las Viñas de Eusebio, from Olivier Rivière, a Frenchman working in Rioja.
