“What the Fearless Critic books and apps have that UrbanSpoon and Yelp don’t is a complete lack of bullshit.”
“I’ve spent years driving around with Zagat...but I think I’ll replace it with this Fearless Critic guide.”

Tango
It takes two…to eat an El Diablo

Date night with an El Diablo dessert. Tango wants to be more than that, but for many, that’s the best it can be.

Oh, it’s a charming place where you can sit with a loved (or you’re-hoping-will-soon-be-loved) one, staring into each other’s eyes as you await your chance to share a paella for two, which might be too oily or too dry, depending on the night. And the place holds a lot of promise with a menu of cold and hot tapas, Spanish soups, salads, seafood, and more. But most of the food lacks oomph, even if the date-night atmosphere lives up, with low lighting and warm, dark colors.

That said, Tango’s been doing its dance for ten years now. Our recommendation: try a drink while nibbling on some small plates, some cheese, and maybe the “Cheap Dates” (Medjool dates wrapped in bacon, grilled eggplant, and red onion).

And if your date wants to try the famed El Diablo, get one to share. It’s beautiful to behold, but far too sweet for one person to finish. Besides, you’re probably trying to save some appetite for sweet nibbles of another kind.
