Anyone have the 411 on the restaurant Minotaur that's going into the old Chloe space? What happened to the all the chefs that have passed thru the kitchen?...Ethan/Abigale, Colin Crannel, Jeff Osaka?
Was a big fan of them all
It was on 411.com a couple weeks ago and is gone now. Ate there and had fun. Hosts were great and nice. Food was okay, but we only had a couple small items. Looking to go back and try more but can not find the telephone number.
Went to Minotaure this month. Liked the decor, it's quirky but demure and inspired, graced by a gigantic, perfectly lit huge plume of pop cool red ostrich feathers over the bar.
The chorizo tapas choice was nice - tasty, perfectly cooked chorizo that wasn't too fatty. The lamb and seafood paella were okay and a little on the bland side, though with a little emphasis on drawing out flavor could have some potential.
Staff was very nice. No valet parking. Beer and wine arrived in great glasses to drink from. If I go back I'll get the chorizo again but try something else to go with it.
WOW!!! SO nice to find such a great place within 2 miles of me! The family owned restaurant is such a treat - they care what you thought of the food, and listen to comments. I was so enamored with the spiced almonds, that Lela brought us another dishful. We ordered the seafood paella Valenciana, empanadas de carne, ensalada verde, sangria, and bread pudding. We thought the empanadas were perfection... until the paella arrived! The sangria was just a bit sweet for our taste, but the bread pudding... THAT was the hit of the evening.
I'll be back there in a heartbeat!
