Theatrum, Quito

Theatro National Sucre

view web site ›'s insider take:

Located in the heart of the historic Old Town, the first surprise when you enter Theatrum is how enormous it is. The main dining room has 50-foot ceilings and a terrace overlooking the plaza that seems like it should be reserved for royal weddings. There's also a stylish wine bar in a separate space with 1,000 bottles on offer and a dozen wines by the glass to choose from, along with small plates from the tapas menu. The decor is a little over the top—red velvet curtains and brass chandeliers with black tassels add to its operatic ambience. But you don't even have to be a wealthy patron of the arts (most entrées are under $15) to afford dishes like grilled asparagus soup with sheep's milk and goat cheese, grilled octopus over mixed greens with garlic in a pesto vinaigrette, or fire-roasted Ecuadorian prawns with yuca purée, parsley, and oregano. For dessert, try the exotic Ecuadorian fruits—a tasting menu of naranjilla, cherimoya, guayaba, babaco, and guanabana that comes with a pictorial guide of naturalist drawings for each fruit.—Cathay Che
