Just wanted to report on Orris, a new tapas restaurant on Sawtelle. Its chef/owner is Hideo Yamashiro of Shiro in South Pasadena. Anyway, I had a really fantastic experience. Shiro's doing little dishes of his French-Japanese style, but also with a little Spanish tapas twist. His food is simple, clean, JUST PLAIN GOOD! He brought a couple of things from his other restaurant like the incredible ravioli with shiitake mushroom sauce, and tasty new tapas, like quail with white beans. Oh, and for cheese lovers, they have a cheese plate that's sooooo good, and in my opinion a bargain. They had a good selection of wines and beers. it's just a comfortable, neighborhood kind of place to hang out....and you know food will never disappoint! It was empty when I went, so I just wanted to spread the word...it's great! They have a website, with just some preliminary info, but not much there yet.
