Here's a closer look at Stephan Pyles' San Salvaje, set to open any day now in the old Samar space downtown. The restaurant's name translates to "wild saint," and that pretty well describes the decor — an eclectic mix featuring vibrant colors, Dia de Los Muertos figures, tribal masks and ornate crosses that's reflected in the menu, which showcases influences from Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, Mexico, Central and South America, Cuba and the Caribbean. Leading the kitchen is chef Alex Astranti, who most recently served as executive sous at Pyles' Stampede 66. San Salvaje features a taco bar, a patio with outdoor seating and a bocce ball court; Pyles also plans to feature live music like salsa and merengue. Look for menu details to follow.
