From the owners of Prima Pasta comes this combination club-restaurant (they call it a Resto-Lounge). – The Scene
There are velvet ropes but no bimbos at the door to let in the thirtysomething crowd of well-dressed Latinos. Good thing, since the waitstaff is still working on English as a second language. Though service can be a bit awkward--what with the language problem and loud music--it somehow seems to work. And the space is gorgeous. Lit with a combination of low-level lamps and glowing candles, it exudes a campy Gothic vibe.
Coming from the Cea family, you would expect no less. Though a bit ambitious--the menu ranges from Osaka to Rome to Maryland--there are several gems. Consider any of the carpaccios, pastas or fish dishes. Black raviolotti are plump, overstuffed with seafood and doused with a creamy champagne sauce. The crabcake is an unexpected bonus. The famous mango cheesecake, popular at Prima Pasta, is worth a try too.
