The Americano is the hotel restaurant of the same name. It is a sleek, spacious and modern room with outstanding service. We went for breakfast and the room was half-full with mostly hotel guests. The joy of eating here is the amazing Latin inspired food with soft Brazilian music piped in and the gracious service. I went with the Huevos Mexicanos and LaColombe coffee. The sweets here are all baked in-house and the croissant was eggy, soft perfection. My huevos were a deconstructed eggs with onions and tomatoes with lovely refried beans, fresh avocado and green salsa with tortillas. A masterful dish, so simple yet paired with the coffee so delcious. A smoothie with peach, coconut and banana was the perfect tropical accompaniment. My father's organic eggs(pictured) also showed deft kitchen skill in their simplicity. Overall, a great spot for breakfast. We hear brunch has a live bossa nova band and would love to return for that.
