There may be black magic at play at Stephan Pyles’ latest, San Salvaje, where crosses, skulls, and abstract art hang from the walls, and a whole continent worth of flavors stream from the kitchen. Often, when a restaurant tries to capture too many culinary regions, the results can get muddy, but somehow Pyles is able to catch everything from Mexico all the way down to Argentina, and nothing gets lost. Downtown needed a restaurant like San Salvaje, one that doesn’t pander to boring flavors, and sets out to make dinner an event. Start with a ceviche and keep your focus through some stunning entrees all the way through to dessert.
