Met a friend for a dinner tapas style. I arrived early and decided to check out the new lay out. Very large and spacious restaurant decorated in deep rich browns and red. An open dining area that had a medium size bar area somewhat protected from the dining area. If you went to the other side of the restaurant they had a "nightclub" style bar area with music. I'll need to come back a little later in the evening sometime to check it out.

The ambiance had a bit of a romantic feel to it but the paper napkins certainly seemed out of place. Our server Athenia was very gracious and attentive but when we ordered a second round of wine, one Chardonnay and a Sangria she brought two Chards, but no big deal as she still gave us good service. The wine list seemed a little lacking but still had a decent variety. The sangria was okay but was top heavy with limes and lemons and green apples.

The menu is a variation of hot and cold tapas and full entree's but we ordered off the tapas menu. Our first round of food was cold tapas of a mixed platter of Serrano Ham, Chorizo, fruits and cheeses, Manchego and Bleu Cheese. The ham was cut way to thick and our fruit was 4 grapes and one strawberry. Very disappointing especially since my date was looking forward to the fruit part. The Manchego was quite bland but the BC was rich and creamy. We also ordered the Terrine which was very good. We then ordered off the hot tapas with shrimp empanadas and vegetables in a puff pastry dough. We couldn't find any shrimp in the empanadas and vegetable dish was lacking in flavor and some of the veggies overcooked.

We'll give it one more try as there was many types of ceviche (seafood) which we didn't try.

Only open about 2 weeks now, but wow,they know what they are doing. We are in the hotel and restaurant business so we expect alot when we go out. Had a nice bottle of cab to start off, ordered the escargot tapas,excellent and plentiful, then ordered the crab cakes and jumbo prawns, all tasted wonderful and plated nice. Stefan was our waiter, very attentive and knowledgeable about the history of the building (one of AL CAPONES hangouts).They also offer a danceclub with a dj on Friday and Saturday nights. The decor is a spanish style with iron works and low lighting, nice size booths. We will definatley return!
