This bumping Latin café straddles a corner of the Schuylerville section, and when the weather permits, grab a seat in its palm tree-shaded sidewalk retreat. Inside, find a friendly bar, ceiling fans and tropical fronds. The partners behind this operation have deep roots in the Bronx, and they’ve hit upon a great formula here—so much so, they’ve opened a second spot nearby called Cabo. The classic Cuban-American black bean soup, frijoles negro, gets a zesty kick from lime-spiked crème fraîche. Then tender palomilla is topped with caramelized onions and paired with yucca fries; while coconut rice pudding empanadas are filled with dates for a sweet finale. On Tuesday nights, follow the lively tunes emanating from around the way to dance the night away.
