Ñaño Ecuadorian Kitchen

Ñaño is tiny, and it isn’t especially flashy, but it’s one of your best options for a casual meal in Hell’s Kitchen. The menu is Ecuadorian, with items like ceviche, tripe in a rich peanut sauce, and seco de chivo with big chunks of tender goat. Order the bandera if you want to try all three of these things, and be sure to get the bolón mixto—a grapefruit-sized ball of smashed plantain mixed with cheese and crispy pork. Despite the small space, it isn’t especially tough to get a table, and you can sit in a streetside structure if you want to eat outdoors.
