What to Eat at Congas, Opening Tomorrow in Harvard Square

Congas, a pan-Latin restaurant, opens tomorrow in the former home of Shabu Square. The focus here is on tapas, which range from the traditional (pork sausage with figs, duck with cherry sauce) to the more American-influenced (a salad of chunky avocado with bacon). Entrees span the globe from Argentinian churrasco to Cuban sandwiches to an American hamburger. Congas will be Harvard Square’s second small-plates focused restaurant. Check out the menu below and let us know if you think Small Plates should be worried.
