Type: Latin American, Pan Latino Description:

In the space that used to house Cafe on Main is this sassy pan-Latin newcomer serving the flavors of Mexico, Colombia, Argentina and Ecuador (birthplace of owner Luis Aucapina). Here, you can have huevos rancheros for breakfast, a Cuban sandwich for lunch and churrasco (Ecuadorean steak) at night.

 

That was some spectacular Cuban sandwich I had at D’Canela, a new pan-Latin restaurant in Amagansett. Juicy roasted pork, ham, pickles and Swiss and spicy mustard on grill-pressed slightly sweet bread was pure joy. So, how did that same kitchen send out such an unappealing fish taco? Oily fried bits of fish drizzled with a dark red sauce were thrown on top of soft corn tacos; rice, carelessly heaped onto the plate, covered half the fish. There was not so much as a leaf of cilantro, a shred of slaw on the plate. Redemption came in the form of  dessert: an opulently creamy flan I could not keep my spoon out of. Go figure.
