SOMOS Latin Kitchen and Bar

SOMOS Latin Kitchen and Bar

Regular guests of Costanera will be familiar with
Chef/Owner Juan Placencia‘s commitment to serving
delicious cuisine with bold flavors in a
warm, casual atmosphere.

Now, he elevates Latin cuisine further
with his sister restaurant, SOMOS.

SOMOS translates to the simple, inclusive phrase “We Are”:
an inspiration to celebrate the world of Latin cuisines
in a delicious and creative way;
this is the guiding principle behind the new
restaurant, just opened in North Arlington
by Chef Juan and his family.

SOMOS is a celebration of Latin American
flavors with a global perspective.
A lively bar pouring the full spectrum
of Latin spirits, a gathering place for drinking, dining,
late-night entertainment, a new brunch destination…
SOMOS will be all this and more.

Cocktails by award-winning mixologist
Rachael Robbins are beautifully
presented, and reflect her expertise in coaxing
stellar, well-balanced flavors out of a few simple ingredients.

In addition to select Old and New World wines
and craft beers, SOMOS cocktails include:

For A Good Time Call…
1615 Pisco, Vanilla, Passionfruit, Lemon, Cane Juice, Cava

Carmen Sandiego
Pisco, Ginger Beer, Calamansi, Cardamom, Orange Blossom

Have A Cigar
Cask & Crew Rye, Banana, Lime, Panela, Coffee/Cocoa Bitters

Humbert & Lo
Rum or Horchata Vodka, Lime, Pineapple, Cotton Candy

(Pssst – there are also special cocktails that are not
on the list — all you have to do is ask for them,
or look for clues on Instagram @chickologist.)
Happy Hour Menu is available NOW!

SOMOS. “We Are”…the universe of Latin food: familiar flavors,
new dishes, made from scratch.
Chef Placencia is thrilled by the opportunity
to present an innovative yet very
accessible menu that includes both traditional flavors
and unexpected mashups of multiple cultures’
cuisines, for dinner, lunch, brunch and late night.
