First time to Brasitas - What's the dish I can't miss?

I'm headed to Brasitas tonight - at their new location in Norwalk. The Stamford one has been on my "must try" list for a long time, but I've never managed to get over there. What is the dish I can't miss tonight at Brasitias?

  1. Just had dinner at the Norwalk location. Pretty good. For appetizers we had quesidillos, steak skewers, and empanadas. The empanadas were the weak link -- mushy and flavorless. The other two were very good and the chimichuri sauce with the steak skewers was excellent. For entrees we had chicken in coconut curry sauce (an odd flavoring given the ethnicity of the place) that was delicious. Also had the short ribs braised in a coffee flavored sauce. Didn't taste any coffee flavor and the ribs were pretty fatty. All in all it was a bit inconsistent, but not bad. They have a Sunday brunch menu that looks interesting (and cheaper) that might be worth trying....

    1. I've been to the Stamford location twice (had to... business dinners) and I've yet to find a must-try item. The ceviche is pretty good, but not awe-inducing.
