From the owners of Prohibition on East Colfax comes an exciting new addition on Broadway named Lena. Lena brings Latin-American fare to an up and coming neighborhood. The space itself is not too big and overwhelming which makes it perfect for an intimate setting. They have both community tables as well as individual tables and boast a great happy hour.
Our party of 2 went on a Thursday evening and were seated promptly at a small table. The drink selection included a variety of wine, beer and cocktails with a Latin twist. We started with the Ceviche de Camaron, which was definitely a hit. We opted to share a few dishes as our main course and I am glad we did, as were able to taste a few dishes and get a good feel for the flavors. We decided to have the Tacos Carnitas de Bisonte and the Empanada Cujiente con Cerdo y Pollo, as well as the Papas a la Huancaina as our side dish. We both enjoyed the meal, the flavors were great and blended well together. The service was pleasant and knowledgeable but not over the top. We are looking forward to trying their happy hour specials at our next visit.
Overall we had a great experience and are looking forward to going back. The food and drinks offer a different experience on Broadway and we both agreed this would be a great first date restaurant. If you are in the area stop by and check out this new exciting restaurant. Buen provecho!
