Cafe Atlantico, what do you think??
i hear all the hype about Minibar, and i was curious if Cafe Atlantico is anything close? Going out with some friends, none of which have the patience or the desire to do the Minibar, though i cant wait to try it one day. Is it worth going to Atlantico, or should we go to one of the many other great restaurants in the city??
I haven't been in about 2 years, but I love Cafe Atlantico. Food is great and there's just something about the place that I love. And the rose petal sorbet rocks. And great mojitos.
I think it's time for me to go back.
I had a great meal there last month before a show at the Shakespeare. Don't remember exactly what we got, but we ordered off the pre-theater menu, and we were both extremely pleased with our selections.
It was our first time there, and we definitely added it to our "will return" list.
I have season Shakespeare tickets and find myself there a couple times a year when I'm not in a tapas mood. It's always been consistent, and I love their guacamole (made tableside and you get to determine how spicy). I have had great duck confit there - just falling off the bone. Nice atmosphere too.
I've been there twice. Some of the food was good, some was not. Nothing I would describe as 'great' and nothing that makes me want to go back. I do not consider it to be close to the Minibar experience, although some folks have posted that the Latina Dim Sum brunch on weekends is.
