During Latin Restaurant Weeks, guests will be treated to prix fixe brunch, lunch and dinner menus as well as cocktail specials starting at $10 from participating restaurants. This year's hottest food trend, birria, takes shape in the form of ramen or pizza available at Tacotlan; the classic Cuban sandwich is the star menu selection at Senor Pan; and specialty cocktail offerings are courtesy of Osito's Tap. Latin Restaurant Weeks organizers hope to gain an additional 10+ Latinx participants.
