Tapas Teatro (Baltimore) great meal

Crowsonguy | Jan 3, 2006 12:11 AM

There have been some unfavorable comments on Tapas Teatro on Charles Street on the board, but I have always liked their informal style, their quick and informal service, and usually their food.
Sunday night was a particularly mouth watering and flavorful meal:
Crumbling duck confit in a beef stock and red wine reduction with thyme, over soft garlicky white beans - wow!
Just cooked spinach with white raisins and apples in a light maple and apple sauce: great texture and color, vibrant flavors.
Mediterranean eggplant: big chunks of soft eggplant with a tomato and lemon goo, and the lovely crunch of crushed, but not gound, coriander seeds. Just a dab of sour cream to mellow it.
Chicken kebabs: two little kebabs, well charred on the outside and unusually soft inside; plenty of cumin.
Flat iron steak: a simple sauce of olive oil and capers worked well, but unfortunately the beef was a little dry. Their tenderloin kebabs are better.
Their desserts are pretty and fairly good, and there is a wide choice of wines by the glass.
Our dinner, with one dessert, three drinks and two coffees, came to $76: not cheap, but there are few local restaurants that offer such a wide range of choices, and do it successfully.
