Brian MacMenamin (who also retains his position as co-owner/executive chef at Post Road Ale House in New Rochelle) is heading up the kitchen at this 50-seat restaurant opened in the space that previously housed BarCar. Azul’s menu (main dishes range from $10 to $24) includes entrées such as mofongo (mashed green plantains with shrimp or chicken); tacu tacu (a rice-and-beans pancake, a thin steak, fried egg, and plantains); and coconut- and banana-crusted grouper. Don’t miss the homemade sangria. Entertainment offered includes karaoke on Fridays and a DJ on Saturdays. Open every day for dinner and Sat and Sun for brunch.
