AAA Inspector Notes
Guests do not have to travel far to feel the influence of Spain, Mexico or South America. This hot spot serves upscale Spanish fare from its clean-as-a-whistle open kitchen. Entrées range from grilled swordfish with heirloom bean salad to a bacon cheeseburger. The busy dining room is decorated in original photographic artwork, designer tile walls and lighting. Servers are knowledgeable about ingredients and preparations. A live jazz band keeps the high energy atmosphere up during Sunday brunch. The dinner menu features numerous tacos such as spicy shrimp, bacon and avocado or crispy fried chicken with fennel slaw and spicy buttermilk dressing. Some a la plancha options include beef with green chilies and crispy pork belly, while the small plates menu is a great way to taste a variety of items from grilled octopus with tiny potatoes to mushroom and cheese quesadillas with black truffle salsa.
