tapas at Marisol on W/Th/F

Hungry Celeste | May 30, 2004 11:20 AM

$4 a plate, something like 12 cold choices and 12 hot ones. We sampled 10 --let's see if I can remember them all:
--herbed goat cheese & toasts; good, but rather basic.
--chorizo stuffed dates wrapped in bacon; extremely good; one plate's worth (4) wasn't nearly enough. Sweet, salty, crunchy, oozy...
--grilled chorizo & peppers; can't get enough of that chorizo
--garlic shrimp
--sauteed duck livers in almond sauce
--grilled pork with pimenton
--seared tuna on fresh tomatoes in vinagrette
--cold potatoes in garlic/pepper mayonnaise
--sauteed summer sausage & mushrooms

I can't remember the 10th plate--but the sangria was tops, too. I was much happier with the quality/variety/price of these tapas than Vega Tapas Cafe, where similar portion sizes were priced $2-4 per plate more. Plus, the Marisol menu had a greater variety. We sat on the patio in the very early evening; overall, quite lovely. The patio is casual, no tablecloths, with a trickling fountain and funky decor. We had great, attentive service, too...
