Quinta - delicious Portugese, with a modern twist

A weekend dinner for two. Superb food, attentive service, surprisingly not crowded.

Quinta Caldo Verde (vegetarian version): beautiful pureed kale in a cream broth. I thought the cream was a tad bit heavy, but my companion practically licked the bowl.
Lobster Balls: Very greasy, so I asked for some piri piri. Our lovely waitress came back with this precious bottle of housemade piri piri that was out of this world. I asked her to leave it at the table for us. Seriously, one of my favorite part of the whole evening. Ask for the hot sauce.

Seared Tuna: there was ALOT of tuna, beautifully cooked and seasoned, served with root veg and fingerlings. The only disappointment was the quail eggs promised on the menu. They were overcooked and carelessly placed on the side. I was hoping for more of a runny egg concoction on top of my tuna.
Duck: pink in the middle, seared beautifully, delicious jus, and priced very reasonably for the portion.

Drink menu: nothing to write home about. Concise, smart, fairly priced.

Dessert: didn't have any, but looking around, we should save our stomachs for some next time.

Nicely priced, nice ambiance, beautiful food. I would go back soon.
