Spanish restaurant at 55th and 35th in Seattle?
There's a brand new Spanish restaurant next to Nana's Soup Kitchen on 55th and 35th - kind of Laurelhurst, kind of Wedgewood, maybe? Does anyone know what it is?
tried the lamb shank. The piece i had was tasty but old (some of it was dark and hardened, perhaps too long uncovered in the fridge?)-- maybe better to try something else there. The server/bartender had a tendency to wrap his fingers/palm around the top edge of your glass (whether water or wine), disconcerting since he also had a cold and was wiping his nose with the same hand etc. Very friendly place, otherwise. Could use some sherries/ports/malmseys etc.
What's the verdict on Gaudi? Just reading about it in Seattle magazine and tempted to check it out.
I know it is un-houndy to quote second hand information, but I swear my mother taught me everything I know about food anyways. She said they thought Gaudi was okay, though a little pricey and found much better value at Bilbao, next to metro theaters on 45th.
I was there a few months ago for a wine tasting with tapas through The Spanish Table, hosted by Catherine Reynolds, and husband Ken who works in the wine industry . She blogged about it http://madeleine.typepad.com/my_weblo....
I particularly loved the croquetas, squid, and paella. The owners owned a restaurant in Spain for years and have been at this location for about two years.
I'd give it a try.
