Tabla does everything right. Why? Because at Tabla, everything matters. From audacious preparation to flawless service and presentation to the careful positioning of a cylindrical water glass next to a rectangular flower vase, this small Mediterranean bistro doesn't miss a beat. Their generous offer of three utterly sophisticated dinner courses for just $20 seems like pure charity. Start with decadent chunks of fresh mozzarella swimming in sweet chilled melon soup, a refreshing treat complicated by balsamic vinegar and salty prosciutto garnish. Next, try the wine-and-tomato braised beef ravioli, wrapped in Tabla's signature housemade pasta. Finally, delight in pan-seared halibut prepared with cherry tomatoes, basil pesto, chilies and spicy arugula. (JAD)
