Carnivale

by gastronomicbypass

Location – 702 W Fulton St

In one word – Party

Food – This place is supposed to give you the feel of a big party with a todo el South Americano theme. The food fits accordingly. I was very impressed by the restaurant the first time I went and less thrilled by the food each subsequent visit. The guacamole is supposed to be outstanding, but I get more excited by the Chipotle version (I heart Chipotle). I always stick by the pork dish basically because I’ll order anything that comes with plantains. It’s decent and worth ordering because the pork comes out tender and juicy.

Drink – This they do well. Try the raspberry mojito and the horchata (it’s a Mexican milk drink) martini. You will like (use your Borat voice).

Service – They’re a fun crew at Carnivale – very social and willing to give advice on how to order right.

Scene – The place seats about 600 total, so it really is a giant party when it’s full. I once came during Mardi Gras, bad move. I found the traveling band and performers to be obnoxious. A lot of 30-somethings like to frequent this place, probably because it’s walking distance to their starter-home lofts of Fulton Street.

Occasion – This would be a good place for a birthday dinner. Probably not so great for an intimate dinner. Also consider C for a company party.

Dress – Jeans and heels would be the minimal dress. Go forth and experiment with that big belt over the sweater dress at this place.

Cost – Depending on your thirst, you’ll probably pay between $30 – 50 per person here.

If you like…, try – Nacional 27, Adobo Grill, Coobah, Quartino
