From its original South End beachhead to locations in Brookline Village and Harvard Square, Andres Branger’s South American charmer continues to beguile with small plates, the hearty corn flatbreads that are arepas, grilled meats and fish, and complex, delectable stews, all served with laid-back sophistication to loyal—and appreciative— locals. Between its popularity and n0-reservation policy, be prepared for a wait at peak times; you will be glad you endured it.
