Ooviña is a wine focused neighborhood restaurant. Our wine list features unique varietals from both renowned and boutique producers, complimented by a seasonal menu of small plates that highlight the aromas and flavors of traditional Latin home cooking.
Executive Chef and Owner, Giovanni Morales, formerly of the revered Market Café, has returned to his culinary roots to create modern Latin tapas. Inspired by traditional recipes from his grandmother’s kitchen, Chef Morales highlights the bold flavors and rich textures of Central American cuisine. His menu focuses on seasonal, locally sourced ingredients and includes dishes such as Arroz Con Chorizo with house made jalapeño sausage, handmade Cassava (Yucca) Gnocchi with bacon, Crisped Pork Loin Tacos with avocado aioli, and Rellenitos de Platano (a very popular dessert in Guatemalan cuisine) sweet plantains stuffed with sugar-cinnamon black bean puree and topped with a caramel-rum reduction.
"It has to be delicious, it has to elevate the flavors in the food,
and above all we have to love it."
Our wine list focuses on interesting varietals from around the world, carefully selected to compliment our small-plates. We offer 16 wines by the glass and 13 half bottles, encouraging our guests to experiment and discover our selection. We also offer a boutique selection of grower champagnes, and handcrafted specialty cocktails (Bebidas) made with fresh pressed fruit juices, homemade mixers, and craft spirits.
We accept reservations up to 60 days in advance. We accept walk-ins, and guests are also welcome to dine at our bar on a first come first served basis. Reservations of 9 or more are asked to contact the restaurant directly.
