Cosmopolitan - Old Town

We went to check out The Cosmopolitian in Old Town last Sunday. We had gone to a function earlier in the day, so we really were not that hungry. We split a couple of apps. and soups. First of all, they really did a beautiful job of restoring the building. It was getting a bit war weary and the end of the Bandini days. The outside may still be a bit sterile, but once the plants fill in, it should be very nice. The place wasn't too crowded, It seemed like there was more action over at Fiesta de Reyes. The crowd was mellow, except for one drunk dude at the outside bar. There was a piano player put in the patio playing old-timey tunes and it was not obtrusive and a nice background fill in. I had the white corn soup, Very corny flavor, with out a lot of filler. It was blended woth whole kernals added. Mrs. LS had the gzapacho. it had bits of squash and avocado added. very good flavor. We then split the clams and mussels. It was in a clar broth with Spanish Chorizo added. I liked it. I thgought the chorizo added a kick to the shellfish, it was too salty for my S.O.. The service was polished. I am ready to give it another try and see what Amy can do with the entrees.
