Went for drinks and tapas with an old friend. Upon arriving I was warmly greeted by the hostess and seated in the dining area that at the back of restaurant.
The decor is very similar to Chambar - and the layout almost exact. But of course Plan B seems nicer cuz of its address. The chairs are more comfortable but I almost did a double take because initially I thought I had walked into the wrong place. Don't let the cool courtyard of Brix confuse you. Plan B is next door. =)
The drinks were good. I tried the Frankly Scarlet I don't give a damn which was nice. Even before we ordered off their tasting menu, we were informed that about 3 items were not available which I thought strange because well it's not a very large tasting menu to begin with - wouldn't they have everything on hand all the time?
So between the 2 of us, we ordered about 5 tapas: the scallops, the samosa, the lamb, the duck, and the lobster risotto. Food came quickly at first and then it came to a standstill by the 4th course. But that was alright since my friend and I had a lot to catch up on.
The scallops were interesting but the taste fell a bit flat. The samosa in a pepper was tasty but nothing super special. I liked the risotto dish but wished there was more lobster. The duck was the most disappointing because I felt like I was in a chinese wonton house - tasted just like that but instead of a $4 dish, this one was $16!!
We had the tiny chocolate cheesecake for dessert and it was yummy but overpriced.
Overall a good place for drinks but I wouldn't take their recommendation and order so much food - a bit pricey for the quality and quantity.
