We would recommend Matiz as a date spot - the food is good, the cocktails are strong and tasty, and the dark, narrow space has a lively atmosphere - but the portions are generous enough that you may have trouble dancing at the stadium (or generally staying awake) afterwards. No matter who you’re here with, start with some tostones with beef and chicken, and then share the platter with steak, spicy sausage, and sweet plantains. Also keep it in mind for later dinners - it’s open until midnight on the weekends.
