THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES Meigas Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Meigas has an unassuming charm, with its airy and softly illuminated dining area furnished with natural wood. The Spanish-Mediterranean menu with Latin accents features dishes that creatively blend ingredients from these regions. Appetizers like escabeche de atún, marinated bluefin tuna, scallions, diced tomatoes, black olives, sesame oil and sorbet; and the alcachofas rellenas de gambas, tiger shrimp-stuffed artichokes in a lobster sherry sauce, showcase the kitchen's talent. Entrées such as the vieras con aguacate, seared sea scallops served on a bed of avocado, orange and beet salad in a lemon vinaigrette; and the eponymous Meigas albondigas al porto, meatballs, foie gras and wild mushrooms in a port wine reduction, deftly blend the trio of influences. The dessert menu features Spanish favorites like peras al vino tinto, slow-cooked pears with a Rioja wine infusion; and flan de queso, cheese crème caramel with an orange foam. The Spanish wine list consists of varietals from the Rioja, Navarra and Toro regions, among others.
