I've tried to like this restaurant, and it's busy, so it must be people like it, but I'm just not thrilled. Maybe I just don't like the Tapas concept, I don't know, but it seems like a lot of money for what you get. I almost feel like I'm eating fast food - I know this place specializes in fresh, local grown, but somehow it feels lost in the translation.

Last night we each had the Boston bibb salad (good, but small for $7) and shared a crabcake ($10 for one). We were still hungry so we ordered the chicken quesadillas, which I thought were OK, but not fabulous (around $10). We also had a couple of our guests' French fires ($5) which were good, but I mean, they're French fries!

Anyway, I basically felt that for $39 we each had some cheap Mexican food, a half a crab cake, French fires, and a small salad.

If you've eaten there I'd love to hear what you think.
