Baru Bistro & Tapas
3700 Magazine St, New Orleans, (504) 895-2225
**/*****: "This tiny, colorful Uptown spot specializes in recipes from the Caribbean coast of Colombia, though many of them have been reengineered to fit the current tapas-style small plates trend. It's a stylish place that serves unfamiliar combinations of rare seafood, chewy and flavorful steaks, plantains, yucca and salsas."
