The food at Mateo is some of my favorite in the area. After being in Spain, I have to say that many of the menu items are not quite the pintxos you'd find there, but the Mateo menu is damn good and the inspiration taken from pintxos is apparent. Everything we ordered was delicious and nothing disappointed us. Our favorites included the bone marrow and chicken skins. It does cost a bit, so we only go on special occasions. The wine selection is good and the atmosphere is comfy but trendy. The menu has something for everyone and many interesting selections. The servers are helpful with recommendations if requested. Do make a reservation, though, especially for a party >2 people.
