Turquoise/Cafe Europa--Pacific Beach

Finally had a chance to check this place out in North PB on Saturday....cannot give a full comment on the food as I only had a penne pasta dish (wihich was pretty good) with a couple of glasses of Pinot. However, with all the talk of Anthology(?) in Little Italy being a combination restaurant/place to catch some live music, I would have to chime in with a couple of thumbs up for this place. The menu did look fairly extensive (primarily tapas and a couple of entrees) and they offer a good wine selection (along with sangria). In terms of the crowd, it was probably 1/3 people in their 20's and 2/3 people in the 30's/40's/and up. Good mix of people, very nice ambience (much more mellower and less pretentious than the downstairs at Jack's La Jolla and more roomy and less crowded at the bar than a Cafe Sevilla) and they were playing fusion jazz. Will definitely return and try something else on the menu...just stumbled into the place on my way home and glad I did.
