Best Latin 

Paladar Latin Kitchen

The success of this Cleveland-based eatery has spawned a mini Latin empire, with a half dozen outposts scattered about the eastern half of the country. This concept was made for duplication thanks to its splashy interior, festive atmosphere, kicky adult bevies and food that is creative and unique while eminently approachable. While we have difficulty moving beyond the mojitos — arguably the best in town — the menu is loaded with amazing textures and flavors. From fresh and creamy guacamole to crispy fried empanadas in the starters section to the fall-apart tender shredded brisket in the ropa viejo and the world-class Feijoada stew in the mains, Paladar is like a vacation from the mundane. You don't get to multi-unit status by doing things wrong, as these guys have been proving day in and day out for years now.
