Best upscale Latin

I know Latin is not particularly a strong suit for New York restaurants in general. I am still a big fan of Rick Bayless places in Chicago. However, we really want to eat at a nice Latin type restaurant that has good atmosphere. Any of these places recommended? Comments/thoughts? What other places should I consider? Thanks!

  1. The only one on your list we've been to is Nuela (twice), and I would definitely recommend it. The arroz con pato is not-to-be-missed!

    1. I have been to Nuela and Yerba Buena (Perry). Both are excellent. I would also recommend Aldea.

      1. I dont know if it is latin enough but I like Degustation. The atmosphere is like a dark sushi bar but I find it sexy and intimate, and very good for dates.

        1. re: daffyduck

          Don't think Degustation is Latin as per OP's definition.

        2. Rayuela has very good food and an even better atmosphere. Both Yerba Buena locations are also good.
