Blend Latin Fusion Restaurant
Beneath red-brick walls adorned with gorgeous, colorful landscape paintings, fiery tapas and offbeat cocktails will stir your senses at sexy LIC hotspot Blend Latin Fusion Restaurant -- and without breaking your bank. At lunch, specials like Cuban-style roasted pork and Ropa vieja (pulled short rib with peppers and tomato) are an enticing $7.95 and include rice, beans and sweet plantains. Appetizing dinner tapas include Masitas (pan-seared pork tenderloins with caramelized onions and cilantro mojo); a Spanish Omelet at brunch brings you eggs stuffed with chorizo, peppers, onions, mushroom and tomatoes. Mimosas are out, as the new-ish establishment has yet to obtain its liquor license -- but your coffee cup will stay full.
