Tapas Teatro Restaurant Review: "Chic" is the word for this uptown restaurant where tapas reign supreme. It's a go-to hot-spot before or after a film at The Charles Theater next door. It's also worth a trip on its own for the sophisticated fare and the enticing vibe. Tapas Teatro is the dream child of Quayam Karzai, owner of the Helmand, and his partner, Mary Ellen Massi. In true tapas style, little plates rule, supported by a decent cast of friendly, well-priced wines. On the docket are grilled calamari with peperoncini vinaigrette, lamb chops with rhubarb barbecue sauce, a Basque stew (marmitako) of tuna, potatoes, peppers and tomato, and much more. Order yourself a table full of high-impact flavors and let the party begin.
