The Bee's Knees Tapas Restaurant & Lounge Restaurant Review: With an outdoor patio, two dining rooms and a bar area, The Bee's Knees Tapas Restaurant & Lounge is a casual and friendly spot for grabbing a glass of wine and a nosh or a complete meal. Design elements include a pressed-tin ceiling and brick walls covered with artwork. The globetrotting selection of tapas ranges from sesame sashimi tartare to crab cakes and tortilla española (a Spanish-style omelet with potatoes and onions). Entrées (or “Big Tapas” as they are called) sway more towards Asia with such options as pad thai with a choice of tofu, chicken or shrimp. Brunch features a variety of dishes based on vegetables and eggs, while the sausage may be made of chicken or "soysage," as no red meat is served. The bacon is turkey. But vegan as well as vegetarian dishes are featured. Coffee is by Buona Caffe, a local roaster. Well-priced wines and an ever-changing roster of American craft beers keep visits interesting. There's also a fair-size list of cold fine sakés. Watch the blackboard for new dishes and specials. Service is fast, friendly and efficient.
