Green Cilantro - Fells Point tapas bar

BmoreHound Jul 30, 2009 11:35 AM

recently opened and is now serving food. Used to be where Whistling Oyster used to be. Bar is very nice; windows open up and they do have some outdoor seating.

Hung out there the other night; had a lot of fun. They have usual Latin-type drinks (Mojito and Caipriahana - they say they make their own simple syrup) plus a cilantro martini that I found tasty. Sangria was not as good as their drinks.

Food was pretty good. I had grilled calamari, shrimp, ceviche, and a pork and potatos dish, and I think I like the grilled calamari and ceviche best.

Owner and server seemed very friendly.

At any rate, it's definitely worth a stop so I thought I'd point it out.

    It's a sad day when "they make their own simple syrup" is praise: water + sugar + heat = simple syrup.

      Sorry - was working and it was supposed to be shorthand for they don't use pre-made mixes. Probably obvious but I thought I'd mention it.

      At any rate, despite my inelegence, I'd recommend trying it. Was a nice atmosphere, and besides, every city needs a good tapas bar IMO.

        Every city does need at least one good tapas bar, though Fells already has Mezze (not that more isn't better).

        My main issue is that Harborque now has competition for the worst name for a restaurant in the city!
