Pura Vida

Simple and delicious Latin food


Its name comes from a Costa Rican slogan that roughly translates into “this is living,” and the homey food at this bare-bones, pan-Latin BYOB is indeed life-affirming: corn patties stuffed with pickled vegetables, chorizo tacos and ginger chicken soup. The staff will even mix mojitos or sangria for patrons who bring their own spirits.
