    Apples/oranges. Rambla is a tapas bar with a modern vibe/sound. Good to excellent food. Pelican Club is a fine dining rest. I have not been in awhile. Try a chow search for reviews of both

      I really like Rambla. It is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. I like the dates, their fried oyster dish and a steak dish that they serve over chicory or escarole. Also delicious is their smoked salmon. The table seating is a bit different. They have some large tables in the middle that can be used for large parties or community seating. I always ask for a table that is not a community table.

        I forgot I had taken a few pictures when I was there. These are a little dated as the presentation for the salmon has changed. But it will give you an idea.
