Modesto on Shaw

This column has not featured any restaurant write-ups so far. Betsy and I went to Cafe Modesto tonight, on Shaw near Marconi on the Hill, and it was amazing. They serve tapas there, which other restaurants call "small plates", and the ones I had were very, very good.

It's probably smart to have reservations; we were lucky and got a table for walk-ins near the bar. The booked tables were unavailable until 9 PM.

A colleague tells me there is Flamenco dancing there on Monday nights, but I cannot confirm that.
