Tres Gatos Hours- Such a Bummer

We rarely get to JP but we have had Vee Vee and Tres Gatos on our list for awhile,thanks to CH .Both menus have a lot of unusual and appealing items.
So today we braved the 101 degrees to go enjoy the tapas at Tres Gatos. Except that we didn't get to even try them because , in spite of the fact that their website says their Sat/Sun hours are 3-11pm ,and we arrived at 3, they don't start serving their full menu til 5:30 on wkends. (Just charcuterie 3-5:30.)
Their website hours info says NOTHING about not being able to get the full menu til 5:30 on wkends:
Note to self: NEVER go to a new place w/o calling first. Heck, never make a special trip ANYwhere w/o calling first.
Man oh man, why do they work so hard to create an attractive place with an interesting menu, only to create bad will because they can't communicate properly on their website? I emailed 'em about it.
So for those of you who don't know this spot, i wanted to warn you about the hours. Other info:
they have a nice and large outside eating area w/ a lot of umbrella tables out on the lawn in front of the house. And inside, their AC works well. Note: most of their inside tables are high chair seating; only 3 or 4 tables have normal height seating.
Good to know as I am about to drag my reluctant DC there- it is highly recommended by some local friends. Will look for your review after you actually eat there.
Tres Gatos is a great great funky place with some of the best tapas you will find in Boston, served with amazing bread , olive oil, and a wonderfully curated wine list.Check out the record store/bookstore in the back fully stocked with old vinyl jazz/rock/ folk records and amazing cookbooks for sale. Definatley worth checking out if you are a tapas hound
I agree. It's been part of our regular rotation since it opened. My veggie meals usually consist of the grilled asparagus topped with romesco sauce and a poached egg - all sopped up with their wonderful grilled bread - and the patatas bravas which are about the best I've had. DC loves the white anchovies, anything they do with octopus and the current menu option of a soft-shelled crab. If you are a red-wine drinker, try the honoro vera - a delicious deal at $7.
thanks for taking this on for the rest of us, OC! I've been trying to find a time to join some ex coworkers there with one who just moved really close. Glad we did not try on a weekend, as we really want the whole menu. I think that sometimes restaurants are so busy that just don't realize how much their web presence affects interested parties. We are hoping to gather on Thursday and I will report back. I consider David's response to you a real plus.
