We started with the grilled asparagus,barata cheese,jamon serrano and romesco sauce. The asparagus was fresh and tender, perfectly grilled. The barata melted in my mouth and the serrano ham was julienned and fried crisp all on the romesco sauce. The crispy sweetbreads were one of the best I've ever had..sorry Waterboy.. but these were so flavorful AND of course how can you go wrong with foie gras? This was so good, seared Hudson Valley foie with a toad in the hole (buttered and toasted brioche with a little hole with a quail egg in the middle) and crisped up prosciutto.

For main courses I had the Grilled salmon. Super fresh perfectly grilled salmon on bed of nicoise salad..the flavors together was perfect. My sister and Charlie had the ribeye with smoked jalepeno chimichuri. They even served Charlie his the way he likes it..raw. If you have wonderful meat like they do, there isn't any reason not to serve it au natural. If you want an good steak this is the place. Oh, my mother had the lamb sirloin on a bed of chickpea ragout, preserved lemon, slow roasted tomato and salsa verde..again we couldn't believe she ate almost all of it.
Everyone thought that dinner was outstanding and we know we'll be back again soon. I think we've found our go to neighborhood restaurant.
