Why we love it already
Just off the RiverWalk between Chinatown and East Village, Fortuna’s Row is a stunner — a jaw-dropping 10,000-square-foot space designed by Fort Architecture. Chef Mikko Tamarra (of Con Mi Taco fame) draws on his cooking experiences in Mexico and Peru to take diners on a culinary journey across Latin America, with offerings like the pato (a classic rice dish with duck breast confit) and the pincho (charcoal-grilled sirloin with shoestring fries and morita salsa), while talented pastry chef Teisha Huff has created an impressive lineup of Latin American-inspired desserts and pastries. If it’s cocktails you’re craving, beverage director Ivana Lovric’s inventive menu is organized by feature ingredient, a bold list that includes flavours such as white chocolate, yuzu, wasabi and corn.
