When's the last time you walked into a ceviche bar and experienced truffle butter popcorn, blowtorched sweet potato brulee, and a homemade gravity bong (strictly for smoking oysters)? 

And that's before you've even tried the ceviche — delectable, innovative creations that include lobster marinated in coconut milk, orange juice, ginger and jalapeño.

Astute scholars of the Spanish language will note that Desnuda means "naked" — but the food here is anything but stripped down. Checkout my latest video to see what I mean.
