My wife and I <and two kids> found ourselves stuck in Managua for our Wedding Anniversary and I remembered and article about this French guy cooking food in Managua and finding no love, and having to incorporate Nicaraguan elements. Well, after a couple of searches I figured it out and we went and loved it!! My wife started with the salmon carpaccio which I thought was excellent - some citrus created a seviche-type presentation. I started with Tacos "Franceses" which was a nicaraguan take on baked brie -- with camembert and sauteed onions, and crepes replacing the tortilla shells. Excellent, but a bit heavy and better as a split dish before appetizers for two to four people. I did not want to finish it and lose my appetite. I had the steak with Jalepeno sauce. While the beef was not completely NY Prime, it was clearly absolutely the best beef we have had in Nicaragua, and prepared perfectly Medium Rare. The sauce was incredible, a cream sauce with strong jalerpeno flavor and a subtle yet persistent heat. My wife had the corvina (carribean sea bass( with a citrus sauce(. I tried it and was struct by how moist and well prepared it was. I only got one bite as my wife wanted it all!! The coffee was excellent and we shared a crepes suzettes (In NICARAGUA we had real CREPES SUZETTE!!) and my wife suddenly was no longer upset that we were in Managua on our wedding anniverary when we were supposed to be in NYC. Well done. Thank you!!
