The New Latin Jazz Bar and Grill on NE Broadway Has Some Star Power Behind It

Carne opened without much fuss last month, but the inexpensive parrilla parlor comes from the men behind the Jupiter hotel and Bunk Bar

There’s a new place on NE Broadway for $15 steaks with chimichurri and $6 pisco sours. Carne, a new Latin American bar and grill, opened July 26 with an assortment of wood-fired meats and cheap drinks.

Carne comes from two big names: Tod Breslau, one of the owners of the Jupiter Hotel, and Bunk Bar co-founder Matt Brown’s restaurant consulting group Title Bout. The team took over the former Sullivan’s Gulch Bar and Grill to open the restaurant, an homage to South American parrillasrestaurants specializing in wood-fire-grilled meats. Chef Joaquin Fernandez, a Fort Lauderdale expat, split the menu into two main sections: starters and sides like gazpacho and papas bravas, and various cuts of marinated and grilled meat. Many plates, including the $15 marinated tenderloin or the $14 pork loin, come with chimichurri, potatoes, and grilled vegetables.

At the bar, drinks are shockingly cheap, from the $4 glasses of house sangria to the $5 Cuba Libres, or rum-and-Cokes. For a whopping $6, visitors can upgrade to a Ron Blanco pisco sour. Larger groups may prefer a pitcher of sangria, which clocks in at $18.

Down the line, Carne will begin hosting live bands in its red-and-gold dining room, but for now, the Latin Jazz comes from the stereo. The restaurant is open from 5 to at least 10 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays; take a look at the restaurant’s menu below.
