The truth is that I’ve been trying to get to Tapavino for ages. The reviews have been great, continuously, but the last time I was in the neighbourhood, before a show, it was too crowded to get in. So, a casual business lunch on a Friday was a nice way to be introduced.
There were various elegant tapas on offer: My favourite would be the dish pictured above, the fried zucchini flower with goat’s cheese and romanesco ($7 for a single serving). A very nice match of flavours and textures. The beetroot hummous was also delicious ($14), but I thought that the watermelon and ricotta salad ($14) was lacking in both watermelon and ricotta, though was tasty enough.
So, tasty and elegant and a nice atmosphere. I think it would be a fun place to come with a group of friends and order as many different tapas (and types of wine!) as you can and share them all around.
