I had another great experience here. All of the staff (Eddie, Shelby, Lexi, Dakota, and Natalie) are super friendly and help to create a very welcoming and fun environment for the customers. They make Sustenio my favorite restaurant in the city.

Huevos Rancheros is an excellent, unique dish. Eggs served on crispy tortilla and not drowning in salsa.

Sustento is a great spot for breakfast on the weekdays or brunch over the weekend. There are plenty of healthy options in addition to the usual staples. The Greek yoghurt with berries was tasty, healthy and inexpensive. Make sure to ask for Javi or Liliana,...More

Happy hour has some nice treats. Dinner will be on the pricy but affordable range. Other restaurants within walking distance include Piatti and Ruth Chris steak House.

Sustenio is a hotel restaurant - you can dress clothes (suits for men or dresses for ladies) or you can be casual. I've only been there once, but I don't imagine anyone would be wearing shorts in there, too nice of a place... More
