The Restaurant I Ate at Last Night V
Cafe Sevilla
Members of the San Diego Company of Friends, Tim Sanders, and about 15 other CoF coordinators and members from around the country joined me for dinner last night in the basement tapas bar of this wonderful restaurant in the Gaslamp District. Spread out over two long tables next to the performance area -- which was livened up by several talented flamenco musicians and dancers -- we shared several courses of tapas and paella, as well as a couple of pitchers of sangria. The food was tasty, the music was energetic and authentic, and the conversation was interesting. I think the Sevilla is probably better suited to smaller, more intimate dining situations -- they were hard pressed to accomodate 20-plus people, and I can see it being quite cozy and romantic -- but I'd recommend it for the music and dancing alone. Supposedly, the place turns into a disco after hours. Just as we were leaving, they started to clear the tables away to make a dance floor. We didn't stick around.
