Brooklyn, New York
November 25, 2001
The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner everyday. It has indoor and courtyard tables, all covered with pristine white clothes. Live performances happen on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday supposedly at 9 but often start late.
On the evening that I went the show opened with guitars and pan pipes. This was followed by a series of dances from various parts of Bolivia, each dance had a different set of costumes and styles of movement. Some of them are obviously based on the clothing and armor of the Conquistadors, others suggest Spanish flamenco, while there was one that inspired a guessing game among the people at the tables near mine.
Since I had not adapted to the local schedule of late evening meals, I did not have a full dinner. My chicken soup, as well as a small taste of my friend's Titicaca pink trout, were both good. Although the food was not what brought us here.
