Patria was a favorite NYC restaurant of mine that broke my heart when it closed. I am only consoled by my treasured copy of Nuevo Latino, which was given to me as a birthday gift by someone who couldn't possibly know how much I would appreciate it years later. Traditional Latin & Caribbean flavors, done with sophistication and sex-appeal. The Patria Pork with Boniato Puree and Black Bean Broth, or Sugarcane Tuna with dried shrimp salsa.. yum.
