This place was awesome. My boyfriend made reservations, although we showed up early and were seated right away. A few locals talked to us outside and gave us mixed reviews but we had a blast. Since it was served tapas style we ordered some chic pea fries and olives to start. Not spectacular but original. Tried the mojitos (classic) which were good and not stingy on the rum and had the real cuban flavor. Real mint and very refreshing. The startes came with the heirloom tomato salad.. Desicious!!!! A smidge heavy on the dressing but the flavors were all great. Then came the reknowned Duck Tounge Tacos.... not my favorite. They were good but I was left wishing I had just stuck with my favorite and ordered the tarar ones the couple next to us had. I am all about trying new things but just wasn't a fan! We also had the chicken thighs with chorrizo and fig which rated great on Yelp. They were good but only 2 of the 4 slices had much of the stuffing and without the stuffing they were great chicken thighs but nothing worth calling home about. Now, if you have read this far you HAVE to order the roasted bone marrow. And eat it while it is warm. And if I went again I would order an extra side of the pickled onions and greens on top and one extra slice of bread. Everything about this dish is superb. If you are a steak lover, this little bit of heaven tastes like the best of the best of the best bite of steak you could ever imagine with a slight crust of roasted bread and only enhanced by the pickled onion on top. If you have never had marrow and are in the least reluctant, do it here. This was spectacular! And it is a tie with the marrow and the baklava for desert. I love baklava and this is BY FAR the best I have ever had. PERFECT blend of nuts and honey and philo. So many are drownd in honey but this is luscious every bite you take and a very generous serving. I was just visiting the area but if I ever go back I would HAVE to order the marrow and baklava (and probably an extra baklava to go....it's that darn good)! Enjoy the adventure! (The ONLY negative was that the service was a little unattentive but not worth skipping the fabulous food for!!)
