What to get: Corn empanadas

Price: $9

Anna’s take: Livery is a Latin American-inspired restaurant that recently opened its second location in Hamilton Town Center in Noblesville. I tried several items during a soft opening preview, and I was thoroughly impressed with everything. My favorite item has to be the corn empanadas, little fried pillows stuffed with truffle, cheddar and corn with a side of jalapeno crema for dipping. I’m still thinking about those empanadas. They were that good. Three empanadas come per order. Another item to try is the picada, a Mexican version of a charcuterie board. At $17, the picada is a great sharable dish that features a spread of pork belly, Serrano ham, beef short rib, Manchego cheese, whipped goat cheese, quinoa crackers and crostini. It was delectable. For dessert, order the tres leches cake. Trust me.

Suggested pairings: I always enjoy a margarita when I indulge in Latin American dining, so check out the Carriage House ($13). It’s a margarita with Gran Centenario Anejo Tequila, orange brandy, lime and agave. Ask for the sweet and spicy rim. You’re welcome.
