The Bee's Knees Tapas Restaurant & Lounge Restaurant Review: Casual and friendly, The Bee's Knees Tapas Restaurant & Lounge encompasses an outdoor patio, two dining rooms and a bar area with such design elements as a pressed tin ceiling and brick walls covered with artwork. The globetrotting selection of tapas ranges from sesame sashimi tartare to crab cakes to 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. Coffee is by MoonBeans, a local roaster. Well-priced wines and an ever-changing roster of American craft beers keep visits interesting. Be sure to check the blackboard for new dishes and specials such as $5 glasses/$18 carafes of sangría on Fridays. Service is fast and efficient.
