The menu here is on a chalkboard that the waiter brings to your table, and you’ll have to quickly select from a variety of bold, flavorful dishes with inventive combinations (like rabbit paté with plum jam or pickled lamb tongue) before he gets impatient. Main courses include Spanish seafood dishes, Italian pastas, and lots of beef. The kitchen is in the hands of smart, tattooed skateboarder-types. It’s not a relaxing place, but it’s very cool. There’s a slightly more affordable Italian-style cantina run by the same folks at Chile 474, between Bolivar and Defensa. Cash only; reservations highly recommended.
