Nuevo Latino heats up the West

Cuban Bread Salad

An emerging cuisine is appearing on menus at restaurants like Destino, La Luna Restaurant, and Asia de Cuba in San Francisco; Xiomara in Pasadena; Miramonte Restaurant and Café in the Napa Valley; and Fandango in Seattle.

The inspiration for Nuevo Latino often comes from blending (or trying to blend) Latin foods with European or Asian elements. Taste a deliciously successful merger in this lively salad from Johnny Alamilla at Alma in San Francisco's Mission District (415/401-8959).
