New ethnic restaurant hot spots

Part of our 2014 list of Hot New NH Restaurants



Revolution Cantina

“Not everything needs to be covered with cheese,” says owner Shane Bodkins at Revolution Cantina in Claremont. Don’t let the Day of the Dead theme creep you out; the Cuban and Mexican favorites are given a touch of Costa Rican cuisine with black beans instead of pintos, a Lizano-style salsa and fresh-ground spices for a piquant and flavorful Latin experience. Partner Isabelle Guillen was born in Bolivia, but raised in Miami, so look for a very nice take on the Cuban pressed sandwiches on an imported bread. A nice selection of tequila is complemented by a fruit- or chili-infused version on the back bar. Wines are from Argentina. Sunday brunch brings the usual rancheros, but also a Latin twist on breakfast items. Tacos for $3 on Thursdays brings the flavors to gringos.

Don’t Miss: Paella with house-made chorizo, mussels, shrimp and chicken, simmered in Mexican saffron broth with jalapeños, onions, tomatoes and Spanish rice (pictured).
