My teenage daughter and I went for a dinner before a show at Blumenthal which is right down the street. It wasn’t too busy early on a Saturday night. The tapas portions were very big so we had more than enough food. Everything we ordered...More

What a fun place! Interesting tapas style menu. We shared five between two people. May have been a bit much (four might have been the right amount!). All delicious.

Dinner was amazing. Service was top-notch. The waitress took time to explain the menu and give some suggestions as well. The pork belly was my favorite with the green beans coming up a close second.
