The Embassy in Buena Vista oozes a carefree vibe. Late-night dining pairs with a varied schedule of live music. On any given evening, there might be rock 'n' roll, Cuban son, or jams performed by chef-owner Alan Hughes himself. There is no stage; musicians strum guitars in a tight corner of the dining room. Across the bar, platters are arranged with pintxos, a type of skewered snack popular in northern Spain. A separate small-plates menu changes weekly and lists dishes such as delectable, rich stewed tomatoes topped with capers, black olives, and a buttered slice of baguette, enveloping a luscious, flaky fillet of corvina. But other offerings, such paprika-dusted braised rabbit with a Greek-yogurt-stuffed roasted red pepper and Israeli couscous, are underseasoned. The Embassy is eclectic, imperfect, funky, and erratic. On nights when Wynwood feels too artsy or the Design District seems too snazzy, Hughes's latest venture in Buena Vista is a hip, fascinating, and delightful place to visit.
