Diablo Review

This catchy-sounding restaurant manages to pull off a hip, sophisticated atmosphere (the spacious interior is striking) while remaining fun and friendly for more casual types. The Latin-fusion menu sounds exotic but is full of accessible, well-proportioned dishes. Mine the small-plates section for tasty treasures: The excellent mussels are bathed in a spicy and savory tomato broth accented surprisingly (in a good way) with cumin, and served with a side of toasted pita bread. The bouncy, fluffy shrimp al ajillo and ample, herbed sirloin albóndigas (meatballs) were both winners, as was a wonderfully tart shrimp ceviche. Entrées are more hit or miss: The rack of lamb’s light sauce did nothing to complement the meat’s gamey flavor, but the spice-crusted Cuban garlic chicken and light-but-flavorful arroz con mariscos are well worth their reasonable price tags. Cocktails are well executed—and do not, we repeat, do not skip the awesome fried dough dessert. Lunch and dinner daily
