Javier's (nuevo Latin in Saratoga Springs)

Just went to Javier's (in the former 28 Tables location on Maple).
Had the tasting menu with fried oyster, ceviche, halibut, duck accompanied with quinoa, tres leche for dessert.
Very good. Duck was some of the best I've ever had in Capital Region. SO's halibut was a little overcooked. Mine was perfect.
More details to follow.
Wish they were on www.opentable.com
PS Haven't posted in ages. Site has changed . . .Can't figure out how to do a search . . .Please link this post to a Javier's thread if there is one. Thanks :)
really good meal last night. we like the space too. we met javier at the red cross benefit for hurricane sandy during which the idea of this place was sparked. anyway, here's the scoop.
we had an heirloom beet salad with radish and crispy avocado and a goat cheese puree, black bean soup with a goat cheese croquette and lime creme fraiche and alaskan halibut ceviche with cucumber, lime, orange, cilantro, sriracha and corn tortillas. the beet salad was a special. followed by the Tamale of Wild mushrooms and Berkshire blue cheese, jalapeño-manchego polenta cake, pan seared sea bass with asparagus and chantrelle mushrroms with a ginger lime butter which was also a special. to close, coffee and tres leche cake.
