I dined solo at the bar on a Sunday night: my first time on that side of the restaurant in the new space. Service was on point. The bartender made me a South Hampton, the perfect cocktail for a nondrinker: ice, tonic water, bitters, and lime. I started with octopus and 5 types of cherry tomatoes: the oven-roasted inside-out ones were intensely acidic, the tentacles smoky and meaty. For dinner I had wolf fish, white, small flake, cooked perfectly, with the skin on complimented by cauliflower, bietina, black quinoa, and fava bean salsa verde.
I got 2 desserts (pinche puerco): the gateau brulee with cheese ice cream, lemon ice and blueberries, and light as air churros with a mason jar of cajeta custard capped with amazing goat’s milk caramel. When I finished the first plate I had the bartender remove the evidence right away (pinche puerco). Loved the dinner, and it gave me good energy for the bike ride back home.
