Isa (chef Isaul Perez’s nickname) has an eclectic and seasonally driven menu reflective of the chef’s background. Every dish displays close attention to detail and technique, from the tender grilled octopus to meatballs and marinara. It’s an inviting place, done up in simple black and white, with a secret courtyard for outdoor summer dining. Lunch and brunch are worthy of attention.
