Once again, I relied on the recommendations found on TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. I had checked with the concierge at the Four Seasons, but he had never heard of the place.
When the cab driver had trouble finding it I bean to wonder if I had made a mistake. But that all ended when I went inside.
The owner greeted us warmly and took us to a table. His English and that of his waiter were fine and with their help, we selected a nice wine, Dialogo, a very drinkable red from the Douro region of Portugal.
The owner took a tiny hole-in-the wall coffee shop and converted it into a really cute restaurant, using artwork, paint and probably a lot of sweat equity. It is not fancy, but it is charming.
But the food was exceptional. We ordered grilled prawns for an appetizer and almost fainted when they were served, They were the size of small lobsters and were scrumptious. Then, while we were waiting for our entrees, we were served samplings of the day's homemade soup and some hors d'oeuvres of smoked salmon on crackers.
The soup was so good that my wife canceled her dessert and had the soup instead.
Between the food, the attentive service and the very reasonable pricing, Sessenta is a winner. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
