Chef/Owner Juan Placencia‘s commitment to serving
delicious cuisine with bold flavors in a

in a delicious and creative way;
this is the guiding principle behind the new
restaurant, just opened in North Arlington
by Chef Juan and his family.

SOMOS is a celebration of Latin American
flavors with a global perspective.
A lively bar pouring the full spectrum
of Latin spirits, a gathering place for drinking, dining,
late-night entertainment, a new brunch destination…
SOMOS will be all this and more.

Cocktails by award-winning mixologist
