Morcilla, 3519 Butler St., Lawrenceville
Ambiance: After long months of rebuilding its interior due to a bad flood, Morcilla has retained and enhanced its warm, welcoming atmosphere with lots of wood detailing, a cozy dining room and the low, pleasant buzz of a busy space.
What we ate: Arroz con pitu de caleya
Hot take: Scraping the last bits of rice browned in the bottom of this pan was heaven. The creaminess of the rice brightened by the herbs was only heightened by tender, moist chicken meat. Crisp chicken skin was a special treat.
