An Up Close Look at San Salvaje, Stephan Pyles' New Restaurant Downtown (Photos)

San Salvaje, located downtown at 2100 Ross Avenue (in the former home of Samar) opened its doors early last month, plating dishes that are inspired by chef and owner Stephan Pyles' travels through South America.

The menu is divided into seven sections, and includes creative twists on Latin cuisine with items like yellowtail ceviche ($12), smoked duck tacos with rhubarb salsa ($10) and crab arepas ($10). South American wines are featured as well as Latin-inspired cocktails like mojitos, pisco sours and Caipirinhas (the national cocktail of Brazil, made with cachaça and lime).
