Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

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).

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
