Suba - A Recap

Guy | May 2, 2003 09:45 AM

So, I went to Suba last night, and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. I took a lady out for her birthday and when I called to make a reservation they were very accommodating. The service seemed professional, not something I expect in a hipster LES place. We were seated in the Grotto (aka The Water Room), which was very nice. The tables were spaced so as to give one a fair amount of privacy. The prices were reasonable, mid 20s for the mains. We ended up opting for the 5-course tasting menu (a 6th is included as dessert) for $55. Started off with a sea scallop ceviche which was excellent, prob the best thing we had. This was followed by a Serrano ham and goat cheese tart (for lack of better word), which was nice and decadent. Then came the sardines which were served atop guacamole, which was decent but I would have rather gotten the guac on the side with some chips and the sardines separately. The first main was a chipolte seared tuna, the flavoring was good but it was too dry. The second main was a roasted duck with avocado, which was also decent. The desserts were also good. All and all a pleasant experience and I would def go back. Also not a bad place to go and grab a snack sank and some drinks.
