Latin Quarters opens next week in North Raleigh

This is a post by N&O restaurant critic Greg Cox:

Richard Camos, owner of Camos Brothers Pizza, expects to open Latin Quarters (7335 Six Forks Road; 919-900-8333; on Tuesday, following a series of private trial runs this weekend. Camos, who owns Camos Brothers Pizza in the same shopping center (and a second location in Cary), will explore the other side of his Italian-Argentinean cultural heritage with his latest venture.

And then some. Camos hired chef J.P. Murcia (“a fellow Queens, New York boy”) to serve up a culinary tour of Central and South America, from Peruvian ceviche to Mexican gorditas to Argentinian churrasco steak with chimichurri to ajiaco
Santafereño, a meal-in-a-bowl Colombian soup of potatoes, corn and chicken served with rice, tostones and avocado.

Latin Quarters will serve lunch and dinner daily. After 10 p.m., when the restaurant morphs into a club with live Latin music, a bar menu will offer an assortment of nibbles including empanadas (Argentinean and Colombian style) and Peruvian beef skewers with yellow aji pepper dipping sauce.

A full bar will feature favorite tipples of the region, including Fernet-Coco, a mix of Fernet Branca and Coke that Camos says is more popular than wine in Argentinean wine country.
