We stopped in here recently without a reservation and were quickly seated -- they have a lot more seating in the back than meets the eye from the street. The selection of tapas was extensive and good -- one surprising favorite was a grilled brussel sprout concoction with nuts, soy sauce that we reordered it was so tasty. This place is popular with neighborhood locals and serves an extensive drink menu, including caipirinhas, mojitos and the ubiquitous fru-fru martinis. All in all, I thought the food was at least on a par with other local spots such as Amis and Barbuzzo, but at a considerable $ discount.
