A nice combination of salty halloumi cheese with sweet dates, bolstered by crunchy, toasty cashews. However, the sauce not balanced -- an excessive alcoholic edge from the ouzo which should have been smoothened over with a bit more cooking to burn away the alcohol but retain and intensify the anise flavour.
Finely diced onions, cilantro and tomato make for a savoury base to carry sauteed chicken livers. The juices left in the little pot is delicious. The chicken livers were on the grainy side, with the exception of a couple of delectably firm and smooth pieces.
Very soft gnocchi, one step above mushy, good texture overall. Very oily sauce when a bit of restraint would have spared the dish from a ponderous fate. The truffle oil is faint, the basil is pleasant. A bit pricey for $22.
A food friendly and very drinkable Albarino by the glass, pricey for what it was, but got along well with the dishes.
Satisfying overall, with no major complaints, but nothing exceptional.
