Tinto (tapas), reviews?, BHeights, Brooklyn | Jan 27, 2001 11:43 AM

At first I was in love and awe, a huge space in the heights, tastefully decorated - would the execution deliver on the promise?

Then it opened, and it was filled with slinky black dresses and their parents. I worried.

I have been there twice, having never been to Spain I cannot attest to the authenticity, buy it is pretty tasty. My parents are in love, and they are old school - they order everything "well" when we go out to eat.

a pretty wide tapas selection which seems to vary, market wise, which is nice.

bacon wrapped dates, scallop ceviche, garlic spinach, lobster taco type things were great but messy

entrees are pretty good too, fish handled well and generous, but not family style...

vegetable lasagne was awesome, if a little salty but very 'comfort'ing

oh of course - pretty good wine list priced just right enough to make you go - wow those add up don't they?

a good number from spain, though I think I would like to see more. Actually found a bottle we had, that we liked, at Heights Chateau, on the wall - I thought that was a good sign.

service - borders on hip but can be very charming though some _are_ hip...
