Anise Tapas & Grill

This place has so much promise. I was easily swayed to visit by a diverse menu filled with dishes from just about every country touching the Mediterranean, great reviews, and its proximity to home. Occupying a space that used to house the coffee shop Something’s Brewing, it looks like they’ve inherited some of their pub height tables. The modern decor was a bonus too. Unfortunately, the execution of their dishes was sorely lacking.

The meal starting on a high note with complimentary lavash. From there, it all went downhill. Fresh out of the fryer, Drunken avocado empanadillas ($12) proved to be excessively oily, leaving an unpleasant aftertaste. Also oily were the chips accompanying the Atun tartare ($12). Average frozen tuna, some of it stringy with sinew running throughout, formed the bulk of the dish along with avocado, an egg yolk, pickled ginger and black sesame. Ending the meal was a beautifully plated, hefty portion of truffle wild mushroom pappardelle ($20). Unfortunately, it too was rather oily.

Not even the best restaurant concepts can overcome poor execution. Anise is no different.
