When the Cascade Group took over Latitude on Main Street about a year ago they started making some quiet changes.
Now, they’ve re-branded the joint as El Camino’s and serve Latin American street food like pollo tacos ($5.00) and gambas arepas ($7.50), corn pockets stuffed with prawns, grilled and served in a basket. While you could sit inside the modern digs, the street-side patio is the perfect spot to nurse a 500 mL can of Tecate ($6.25), the cerveza they actually drink south of the border.
Now that’s what we call street cred. —Kelsey Dundon
