Located in the Recoleta neighborhood, Cumaná serves both Argentine dishes and non-traditional fare like wood-fired pizzas. Lanterns and shelves of ornamental bottles decorate the bright, orange walls. A menu of items baked in the adobe oven, include the humita (a mix of corn, cheese, and spices wrapped in a cornhusk) and locros (a stew of pork belly, chorizo sausage, and vegetables), as well as a Neopolitan pizza with cheese, basil, and tomato. House red wine is served in pinguinos (penguin-shaped jugs), and crayons are provided for drawing on the paper tablecloths.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
