Here’s what he likes:
” Convenient location
” A wide selection of both very sophisticated and simple selections. You can take just about anyone.
“A most impressive training staff. Knowledgeable about the menu. They take good care of you, yet maintain a sense of distance and privacy. You never have a sense that they’re interrupting your conversations with clients.
“It is a very comfortable environment. You don’t feel boxed in. Even private dining in the wine room provides a sense of privacy without removing you completely from the ambiance.
“The culinary level is above expectation. Ordering a Cuban sandwich somewhere that is not Cuban is daunting. I was surprised as a Cuban-born American to find Atrio’s take was not only genuine and culturally correct, but very good. Also the gazpacho is non-traditional, but also very good.
” Even the view has value as you look out on the skyline and water.
“The best compliment any restaurant can receive is getting return business from my clients. Every once in a while I go for dinner with my wife.?
