San Salvaje, located downtown at 2100 Ross Avenue (in the former home of Samar) opened its doors early last month, plating dishes that are inspired by chef and owner Stephan Pyles' travels through South America.

The menu is divided into seven sections, and includes creative twists on Latin cuisine with items like yellowtail ceviche ($12), smoked duck tacos with rhubarb salsa ($10) and crab arepas ($10). South American wines are featured as well as Latin-inspired cocktails like mojitos, pisco sours and Caipirinhas (the national cocktail of Brazil, made with cachaça and lime).

You can check out more photos of San Salvaje below.

To counter the 4/4 time of Kergo I counter with this gem:

 "Smoked duck tacos with rhubarb salsa"....i'M IN ON THAT BUTTERY AND FRUITY GOODNESS!  I like the earthiness of both the duck, and the rhubarb.  Perfect.   I like duck with garlic crostini's and/or maybe some Alfredo-or maybe a nice Fajiole.   Holy "schmidt", I hope I didn't start some dumb yuppie trend by suggesting something as banal putting bacon, or an egg, on something.   I'm a genius!  Park Cities and Tollway Sh+theads, let me hear from ya! (now insight slight rapping and Berry Ferry type music with a trumpet, like heard in the nouveau hotel chains).  


ps-Oh yeah, said music has to be played in 4/4 time, with twinkling neon so you can trick the "Urban $sshead" into a gentle and sublime state of bliss. 


"mojitos"......I'm out on that; that trend past liked 15 years ago.

@mann2c55 No, it's actually OBAMA!  And his shift at said locale is the most productive thing he's ever done.

Merkie,

   You work in a tower?  I guarantee you are one of the few normal ones in that place. Towers just make me nervous. Next you guys are gonna tell me Broken works in a tower.

@Mervis_Earl I sure wish I could have found my knitted hipster head cap in time to wear when I listened to the music.
