Tasca Restaurant-3rd/Crescent Heights

Holly Ross Feb 7, 2007 08:05 PM

Went last week. It was GREAT! Had a braised short rib
with a butternut squash and marscapone filled agnolotti that was heavenly.Everything we
ordered was delicious. They still didn't have their wine/beer license, but a friend of
mine just went and said they received it. Ambience was simple with great lighting. Great
date place. Anyone been?

      Not sure. The only Il Soleil that i know of is on Sunset Blvd. Tasca is on 3rd just west of
      Crescent Heights on the south side of the street. The menu is on their website
      www.tascawinebar.com I remember it being pretty reasonable. The small plates were
      from $6-$15 I think, and they were generous portions. Highly recommend.

      i was there a week ago, sat at the bar. really enjoyed the whole experience. the short rib was indeed fantastic. we did a flight of red wines, even though they only have a few on the menu since they're still stocking up. everyone was very nice, great atmosphere. hope if stays relatively quiet though.

        What's the corkage policy, now that they have their own wine list?

          didn't ask about corkage, but i imagine they'd be reasonable since they are only stocking a few wines at first. very nice people behind the bar.

        I just sent some friends last night...they LOVED it. It is a gem! One of those places you want to keep secret but let everyone know about. Would be PERFECT for Valentines Day.

          I went last week and LOVED it!!! We too had the braised short rib (fantastic), a yummy tuna tartar w/black truffles and taro chips, and the BEST lamb I have had in a while--cooked to perfection. They had wine & sangira when I was there. Really friendly service...highly recommended!
