With over 30 years of experience in the restaurant industry, Joe Viher, has finally secured the long awaited space in Spanish Village for his modern Latin table “dream”. The restaurant, Bacán, which means “awesome” or “cool” in Latin, consists of a heavy Central South American influence and present itself as an upscale, casual dining indoor and outdoor experience
Modern Latin food is known to offer a lighter, healthier menu, featuring fresh meats, small plates, seafood, soups, salads and sandwiches with a Latin influence. There isn’t much you won’t see with over 35 items on the menu.
