Tancat Review

Who would have thought that this unassuming Catalan tapas restaurant in a calm part of downtown could be such a showstopper? Tancat's romantic, warmly lighted room has a mellow vibe, just the right balance of bustle, music, and noise. The food couldn't be more authentic if this were Barcelona. Begin with pan con tomate (grilled bread rubbed with garlic, olive oil, and tomato) paired with buttery Spanish ham. A rich stew of callos (tripe) and gambas al ajillo (garlic shrimp) enjoy equal success. Even the price is right.
