El Chicote information
A pleasant family spot in Sabana Norte that draws carnivores for long Sunday lunches, El Chicote grills up beefy sirloins and serves them with black beans, fried bananas and steamy baked potatoes. If you don’t do red meat, there are plenty of chicken and seafood options as well. The six-page wine list is strong on Mediterranean and South American vintages.
