Altus Café-Located right in the heart of Manhattan’s Washington Heights, Altus Café is the latest Latin-American fusion restaurant launched by a member of the Mamajuana group. Restaurateur Lenin Lopez, who has successfully opened Mamajuana Café and Mama Sushi within the same Latin-dominated neighborhood, ensures patrons that Altus Café is a mellow, laid-back eatery with dim lighting and a relaxing ambiance. It’s soothing characteristics are due to luxurious white pillars, LED lights that glow different colors at night, and a slick bar for those wanting to wind down with affordable drinks. The restaurant is designed to appeal families with an extensive kid’s menu, as well as local Jewish residents with specialized Kosher products. Those looking to wine and dine will surely savor Altus Café’s juicy burgers, fresh ceviche (known as Latin sushi to some), and traditional empanadas. One of Altus Café’s highlights is a fruity frozen Altus Tamarind drink, made from one of the Dominican Republic’s most exotic and mouthwatering fruits.
