Justin and I have been to both steakhouses several times, so our preference is to try any of the others.  If we end up doing Peruvian, I have a coworker who I can get recommendations from on typical dishes.

Casa Columbia
8623 Roosevelt Ave
5.25 pm - to try and beat the crowds. If there are any.... This place is open 24-hours a day. While I'd love to do a 1am, I might be eating alone in this case...

Here are some articles:

Plus, a good resource is the thread on here:
http://www.jacksonheightslife.com/community/index.php?topic=1058.0
http://www.weareneverfull.com/cositas-ricas-a-colombian-food-primer-a-podcast/
-- this podcast isn't bad. I listened to it this morning. Doesn't shed a ton of light on the cuisine, but it gets you in the colombian mode - thats for sure.

 :smitten:

As for the afterparty, for those who are game, we could go to Terraza Cafe/Bar
http://www.terrazacafe.com

It's a secret and it's basically the coolest bar ever.

SO there you have it.... Sunday, 5.25pm Casa Colombia. Sunday in Little Bogata.

We'll be there.  Anyone interested in joining us for a walk?  We're starting out from 75th St and probably just walking down Roosevelt.

I could meet you and Justin (and anyone else) at 75th Street and 37th Avenue, or at 75th Street and Roosevelt Avenue. Might sometime between 17:00 and 17:10 be good?

It was fun as usual!  There was quite a bit of talk about the rice they used, it was good if somewhat salty- we had a language-challenged conversation with the waiters about the ingredients!  Jeff and I posted our reviews on Yelp.

We had 5 people at this one with one new person from yelp included. We spent a long time there, talking as usual. I liked the food, but the best part was the people. Glad to get judibean and her bo out on roosevelt ave for the latino experience of the hood.
There was a language barrier, yes, but they seemed eager to communicate and everyone had smiles on their faces. lots of cute families and couples dining out. good atmosphere. I'm happy to be living in this neighborhood.
