Rolando was cleaning the black snapper I selected as I was coming in the door. It was served with roasted peppers, mushrooms, asparagus, and eggplant. The tortillas España on the tapas menu are a fabulous fritata style wedge of egg y potato. I gave my wine selection over to the chef for pairing with my food.
This meal was so good that I went back for a late lunch today and ordered the croquettes pollo. The table next to me had paella that looked fabulous. It would seem that most of the tapas menu is fairly stable, but the entree menu changes daily, depending on what is freshest. Prices on the tapas menu run $2.25 up with most under $3.50. The entrees weren`t CHEAP, but at $8.50 for my huge fish and veggies, I was more that happy.
Because this place opened only a few months ago, they are open 7 days a week. The bar is cozy and the dining room is large with what looks like could be a dance floor? I was told they do special events as well.
