We had been here 4 months ago during a restaurant crawl with friends, as well as a few years ago with family. We returned as part of our month-long celebration of my bride's birthday. Not overly hungry I dove into their Seafood Avocado, sans appetizers.
It's a bed of penne in a creamy Alfredo and Avocado sauce topped with clams, mussels, squid, scallops and shrimp. The Alfredo sauce was flavorful and mixed well with randomly drizzled fresh lemon juice, though the avocado was lacking. Had it been named "Seafood Penne" I would not have missed the avocado. But I have loved avocado ever since one tried to kill me, dropping from my grandmother's tree in Miradero, a suburb of Mayaguez, long long ago. If it's on the menu I expect to taste it. It was, never-the-less, delicious.
I traded one of my shrimp for a coconut shrimp provided by my bride. Life is grand when you have a trading partner whom you love. Both of us benefited. I shied away from my usual chardonnay and settled for a Santa Cristina Pinot Gris, on the waiter's recommendation. The young man nailed it. I value a waiter who knows his wine/food pairings. The choice was an extra base hit.
If possible, I would give Beso 4 1/2 stars. We will return one day. There are varied delicious tapas, purloined from my wife's plate and an extensive menu of main dishes. For dessert my bride had the coconut flan, which was sweet and could stand on its own without the coconut shavings. I opted for the "Creme brûlée" which was actually a cheese cake decorated with banana slices and caramel ribbons. Not sure why it was labeled such.
Good restaurant and, despite seemingly mislabeled items, very good food.
