Bullfiight - Restaurant Review

This was our second visit to Bullfight. We ordered a couple of bottles of Bodegas Barco de Piedra Tempranillo. It was really lovely with the food.

Note that all of the servings are fairly small. With the exception of the seafood paella, each dish can be eaten in about four bites, which means that for a party of four, each person will get one bite of each dish.

We ordered the Jamón Croquettes (filled with ham and cheese - $6), which come four to an order in a paper cone and look like little mozzarella sticks. They are good - rich and creamy, with tiny bits of ham. Sorry - forgot to take a photo before we finished them!

The Tortilla with Caramelized Onion and Potato ($6) was also very delicious - firm egg and flavorful fillings and toppings. The serving consisted of two small triangles.

These Shishito Peppers ($9) were perfectly cooked and seasoned. Not sure how they make them without charring or burning them. So yummy!

This Branzino Crudo (with piperade, green olive puree - $12) was absolutely fresh and delectable!

The Duck Meatballs (with citrus, mint, and sesame - $11) were very tasty and substantial - I think this was the favorite dish for hubby.

The Seafood Paella (with clams, chorizo, shrimp, and saffron - $32) was exellent, although a little more charred on the bottom than expected. Each person got a few bites.

The Fried Potatoes in Bravas Sauce ($7) were also covered in an aioli. I'd prefer for the aioli to be dotted on or offered on the side.

The Redfish Dish was a special that night. Very nice - probably my favorite dish of the evening. Redfish sashimi, frisée, radishes, pickled red onions, a bit of orange, and a nice green sauce - yum!

Hubby isn't into small plates - he barely gets enough to eat. However, I enjoyed the meal, and we went to Mrs. Johnson's for dessert afterwards!
