HID­DEN IN PLAIN SIGHT

Elle (Canada) - - Special -

FILL UP Don’t judge this hard-tofind restau­rant by its lo­ca­tion. While Span­ish tapas house El Carajo is “hid­den” at the back of a gas sta­tion just off the I-95 in Mi­ami, the seafood paella is said to be ex­cel­lent. Reser­va­tions are rec­om­mended.

TAKE A SIP Want to grab a drink at Toronto’s Es­co­bar? First, head to Valdez, a restau­rant on King West, and or­der “The In­for­mant” shot from the bar­tender to ob­tain the pass­word of the day. Se­cond, go to Valdez’s back door; if the red light is on, knock and a bouncer will ask you for the pass­word. Third, en­ter with a drink or­der in mind— there is no menu to help you make a de­ci­sion.

WATCH FOR IT In Ber­lin, skip the usual mul­ti­plex the­atres and head to Durchs­fen­ster Kino, which means “through the win­dow cinema.” This for­mer squat house shows movies ev­ery night at 9 p.m. for a $3.15 ad­mis­sion fee—with a catch. The en­trance is through a ground-floor win­dow and, ex­cept for Mon­day nights, when the movie is from the Star Trek fran­chise,

the film is a sur­prise. n
