Best-ac­tor Os­car nom­i­nee Ter­rence Howard clearly knows how to get the party started. And what bet­ter place to do that than Veronica Laudes’s newly minted Latin-ac­cented spinoff from Torito? “He came in for the first time a cou­ple of months ago with his son and a few friends,” says Laudes. They started with chef Luis Valen­zuela’s grilled garlic shrimp, then fol­lowed with his sig­na­ture kale ’n’ ri­cotta salad with fash­ion­ably poached quail eggs, the house paella and “a lot of mar­ti­nis.” “He was very ap­proach­able, talk­ing with ev­ery­one. It was just like be­ing back in Spain!” Sun­day to Tues­day 6 to 10 pm, Wed­nes­day to Satur­day 6 to 11 pm. Week­end lunch 11 am to 3 pm. Bar till close. Closed some hol­i­days. Reser­va­tions ac­cepted. Li­censed. Ac­cess: bar­rier-free, wash­rooms in base­ment.
