Casa Mono tonight- any recs from recent meals?
Hitting Casa Mono tonight for the first time in a while- anybody eat there in the last few weeks and have something blow their mind?
Jon's review in mid-November highlighted the fideos with clams, the chipirones, and the pork cheek with quince.
Any other current specials/seasonal items to look out for?
I was there with my girlfriend about 3 weeks ago.
Razer clams - amazing.
i second the pumpkin/goat cheese croquettes - delicious
and the pan con tomate - simple and perfect.
Loved the razor clams, brussels sprouts, and creme brulee with battered and fried sage leaves - mostly for the fried sage leaves. Was not such a fan of the pumpkin croquettes - found it a bit dry and heavy, more like donuts than croquettes.
There was a tall frisee salad that looked good, too.
you definitely cant go wrong with the brussel sprouts. I had the frisee salad and it was delicious. Simple, clean and refreshing. Razor clams.....all i can say is yum!
Interesting that noone has mentioned the meat dishes (except the lamb ribs). As much as i love the food and ambiance of casa mono, i do find a lot their dishes very heavy (lots of oil). Thoughts?
DEFINITELY not shy with the oil. Yumy is right though, it is an overall great experience. And love sitting at the kitchen bar.
