I thoroughly enjoyed my visit this evening to Abigail's Party, a small (~40 seats) tapas bar on 1st Avenue West at Yew Street. The staff was attentive and the food and drinks were superb.
Both my wife and I enjoyed the beet salad which is comprised of mesculin greens with roasted red and yellow beets, tossed with a vinaigrette. It was excellent. The next dish we tried was the haricot vert with beurre noisette (pine nuts) - very simple and tasty, not overseasoned in the least, but not lacking anything either.
We also tried the grilled squid with chorizo, which was excellent, as was the scallops (pan seared) served with a variety of mushrooms. Both excellent dishes that my wife and I enjoyed equally.
For dessert, I had the lemon tart with cherry sauce, which was fantastic. My wife had the creme brulee, which I had a small taste of - with the orange and ginger flavours it was really refreshing.
The drinks we had were very well made and original. Well, my drink was well made and my wife's were orignal. I had a vodka martini (or two) and it was made exactly as I ordered it. You would think that this is an easy thing, being that I am very specific as to how I like my martini when ordering one. Unfortunately this is not the case. All bartenders are not created equal, as any dry martini drinker will attest. Long story short, excellent drinks :D
All in all, excellent food, excellent drinks and excellent service. I quite completely enjoyed my meal at Abigail's Party, a surprisingly small yet professional and attentive tapas eatery.
