Sazón (Closed)
105 Reade St.
(bet. W. Broadway and Church)

Sazón is a boisterous Puerto Rican party, with a level of pizazz one might expect: vibrant colors, a lively bar, loud salsa music, upholstered walls, and bordello chandeliers. The menu is broad and bold, with Latin classics such as ropa vieja, pernil, paella, and lots of plantains. The restaurant is open for lunch (and happy hour starts at 11:30 a.m.). Closed January 2018.
