    Exquisite. The pickled eggplant has to be the hidden gem here. Order bread to go with it. Oddly it doesn't come with bread, but it definitely should.

    A bit too noisy so can be difficult to have a conversation, but food was great.

    My dinner guests loved the menu and the ambiance of Lena. We had a comfortable table by the windows in the main part of the restaurant. Since we arrived in the middle of Happy Hour, we took advantage and ordered wine. My only reservation about Happy Hour at Lena is the quality of the wine they offer during this time is not the best and there are only two choices, red or white. If the was perhaps a nice rose or a sparkling offered, that would be much nicer.

    Overall a great experience that featured an innovative and appealing menu. Starting with the Lẽna roasted mushrooms (V) and Yucca Fries (V). The latter had a crunchy exterior and fluffy interior. And elevated by the Sherry Aioli. Their sourdough focaccia bread (V) accompanied by two dipping bowls. One spinach & artichoke, we found it bland, and olive oil. Local Burrata Cheese (V). Featuring a not too rich cheese with fabulous preserved tomatoes. Wonderfully fresh Frisée and basil. Broken avocado salad (Vegan) w. Green beans, kohlrabi, clementine, string cucumber, pumpkin seed and sherry vinaigrette. A really delicious dish with an unexpected variety of well matched ingredients. We opted to add the Sockeye Salmon, which was unfortunately overcooked. Aregentine Egplant Salad Escabeche (Vegan) Red Onion, parsley, crispy chickpeas, smoked paprika and garlic emulsion. A very flavorful dish that could’ve benefited from less oil. We chose to share these appetisers and small plates. While appreciating the very attentive and quick service, all the dishes but one arrived at once. Our server said that our dishes would go well with bread. Ironically, the Focaccia was the one that arrived well into our meal. Would recommend Leña and looking forward to returning. Some service adjustments would be appreciated.

    One of the better spots in the financial district. Such a unique place and culinary influences, both South American and European. I love the shishito peppers and many of the tapas. IG: mansafx
