La Vitrola

2–01 Baloco
Cartagena , Colombia

In this convivial spot with potted palms, a dapper six-man Cuban band is always stationed at the door. It's Cartagena's unofficial clubhouse, a place where dignitaries and journalists trade off-the-record jokes and women in expensive sandals pick at complicated salads. Try the carpaccio de mero - grouper sliced paper-thin and dressed with lime and olive oil - or the grilled langostinos.
