Javier’s is big, loud, and there will be approximately seven birthday or anniversary dinners happening around you whenever you go. Start with chips and their salsa - that you’ll want to pour on top of everything you order - then go for one of the seafood dishes, like the red snapper mojo de ajo. And while you’ll probably stick to margaritas while you eat, make sure you end your meal with a Cafe Pierre, an after-dinner coffee cocktail that’s mixed and set on fire table-side, before you hit the cigar bar.
