El Arbol

Wow! A group of us went to one of the soft openings for El Arbol and we were completely blown away. The food, decor and atmosphere were all fantastic. The service was impressive as well.

We had pork, beef and scallops. The sides were two dipping sauces and one small portion of purple mashed potatoes. I suspect the full menu is slightly different than what we tried at the soft opening. Big thumbs up on the food and the wine that was selected for us. I can attest to the Cosmos too! Yum!

Since this place is in our hood, we'll be there regularly. The underlit onyx bar on the second floor is going to be my spot until it warms up and I can hang out on the beautiful patio.

Go by and check it out. The decor is retro and you feel as though you might run in to Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin or Sammy Davis, Jr. I really enjoyed it. They have a facebook page up but I haven't seen the full menu posted yet. Stay tuned.
