The Empanada Sonata

The Empanada Sonata was created by Keith Moran, A NYC Firefighter and Marlyse McAdam, part time cook, and part time lead singer of the band, “Betty Rocker.” Their goal is to provide the ultimate “eat out” experience. They offer 15 delicious, home-made empanadas ranging from the classic beef empanada to a dessert-based Nutella and Banana empanada.

The Empanada Sonata also features seasonal empanadas! Along with this wide range of delicious empanadas, their guests can choose from 10-15 different dipping sauces.
