A couple of years ago my wife and I had dinner at the Burrata Bistro for our anniversary. The food was good, but nothing extraordinary. And the service was the pits! Our server kept annoying us...either by constantly asking how things were...or by moving stuff around on our tiny table. We also didn't care for the atmosphere. Stark walls made it noisy, tables were so close together we were always bumping the tables next to us, and it was so dark we could barely see what we were eating.
BUT...last night we had my birthday dinner at the paella bar next door (both restaurants owned by the same owner and a walk through from one to the other). It was like night and day. Our server, Jen is a very lovely, gracious, fun, and friendly young lady. She poured us small tastes of a few different Spanish red wines (gratis), so we could decide what to order. Then she ran down the list of NINE daily special tapas. All sounded incredible! When we ordered tapas, we included an order of Spanish Coca Bread (kind of a Foccacia topped with sweet red pepper, roasted garlic and pine nuts). She brought us a half order, explaining that with the other tapas we had ordered, she thought we might prefer that to a full order. And of course we paid half the price. She was right on...that was plenty. We also ordered the Calamari a la Planche (delicious, tender garlicky rings and tentacles sauteed quickly in garlic, butter and seasonings), and two of the daily specials: four little chanterelle tarts made with slightly tough and chewy puff pastry, but great flavor, and five Roasted Figs stuffed with Gorgonzola, served with a Balsamic reduction sauce. This was plenty of food to fill our tummys. Our bill for two glasses of red, the delicious bread, and the three very filling tapas plates was $42.00. We're really looking forward to heading back a few more times to try everything on the menu (including the paella). Food, service, and atmosphere were all impeccable! By the way...the Paella Bar was nearly full when we left around 8:00 and the Burrata next door was nearly empty!
