Last week a friend and I attend Paladar's media night showcasing the newly remodeled restaurant and the Carnival menu.


While I adore BOMBA, I've never been to Paladar. Neither had my friend. I had no idea how much of a treat we would be in for when I accepted the invite.

As Westsiders going east in a mini blizzard, we were welcomed into the warmth of Paladar. The beautiful open space and smiling waitstaff made us feel happy and comfortable right from the start.

Like all great evenings, it started with cocktails!

There are three drinks made special for Carnival and of course featuring rum - Coconut Pineapple Caipirinha, Blood Orange Caipirinha, and Passion Fruit Caipirinha. Not sure which one to try? The Caipirinha Flight Trio lets you try all thee. Caipirinha (pronounced kai-purr-REEN-yah) is Brazil's national cocktail, made with cacha├ža or rum, sugar, and lime like an Old Fashioned or a Mojito.

My favorite was the Coconut Pineapple but the Blood Orange was a close second. The flavor is as refreshing as it is complex and so smooth.
