A Fabulous Meal at Cortez

Flawless is the only way to describe our first visit to Cortez. The restaurant was able to accomodate our last minute change from four people to five; we were seated immediately upon arrival at a spacious table; our waitress knew in advance (from the Open Table reservation) that there was a vegetarian among us and patiently explained exactly which dishes qualified and which others could be modified to work; this same waitress (as well as the rest of the waitstaff) would prove to be extraordinarily professional; the timing/pacing was great (the dishes came at perfect intervals - we were never hungry nor did we ever feel rushed). The food itself was terrific: corn ravioli, katafi-crusted crab cakes, beet salad, duck, lamb, fries and a chicken-less mushroom dish. A bottle of Spanish Garnacha (a bargain at $39) was delicious. Wow. Very impressive.
