Put down the remote! If the dreary weather has you crawling under your
comforter, its time to put on your best boots and head to gastro-crazed
With a neuvo Latin style, the cozy and kitsch-free Cobre
makes the most of its heritage space with exposed brick walls, copper
tones and wood floors. Slip into a bottle of Argentinas Firesteed Pinot
Noir ($50) and choose tapas-style plates to share, like the tasty roast
garlic eggplant chevre empanada ($11) and the must-have skirt steak with
cinnamon-flavoured chorizo hash ($15).
For dessert, the decadent chocolate Ibarra soufflé ($7) is worth the
25-minute wait. Just be sure to use your time wisely by enjoying another
bottle of wine.
