Masa Restaurant Review

: A fashionable crowd flocks to the popular Southwestern staple Masa for its tapas bar menu. Portions are hearty and the menu is wide-ranging. We recommend the skillet roasted sea scallops and barbecue duck with sweet corn cream, as well as the gulf shrimp quesadilla with goat cheese and smoked pineapple salsa. The softly-lit dining room features pricier plates --- don't miss the zucchini steaks with sweet potato crisps. A wake-up-your-palate weekend brunch, meanwhile, offers the opportunity to sample unusual treats: caramelized plantain empanada with Mexican cinnamon cream cheese, and Santa Fe-style eggs Benedict topped with a green chile hollandaise and avocado.
