Tasca was ranked #75 on LA magazine top 75 restaurants. it's a block from my GFs house so we went for dinner last nite. very friendly and warm atmosphere. kind of loud cause it was crowded. very nice breads and eggplant spread. got the zuchinni flowers stuffed with crab, they were really bland and boring. got the shrimp in garlic sauce, they were succulent and fantastic. got the flatiron steak with fries, medium rare. tasty, but no big deal, i've certainly had better. the table next to us got the calamari, which was in an overflowing huge basket . they said it was very good. the seating was very crowded and uncomfortable. i think they added more tables cause my GF said it was always empty before they made #75.
