Found in one of the most artistic areas of the city, the Escalante neighborhood, Kalú itself is a work of art. The building is home to not only the restaurant and terrace seating, but also the eye-catching Boutique Kiosco and Cafeoteca, a coffee bar where purely Costa Rican coffee is available. Inspired chef Camille Ratton creates an array of dishes that range from Indonesian vegetable soup to falafel to quiche. See the Kalú website’s gallery of photos as well as the enticing (and oh-so-well-designed) menu. Be sure to check out the boutique afterwards for Costa Rican clothing, jewelry, ceramics and toys.
