As I posted yesterday, we went to Jaleo for my birthday dinner last night. It was pretty yummy, and we had a great meal. Unfortunately we got kind of a crappy table- right by the door (we went to the DC one). I would have rather been seated further in the restaurant, but oh well.
The food was good, but I thought it was a bit over-priced. To me, the pitcher of sangria was not worth $28. It was decent sangria, but not the best I've ever had. One of the tapas I had was the grilled pork sausage with sauteed white beans. It was good, but the beans were really tiny, almost dried-up looking. I guess I was expecting big beans, like how I had it in Spain. (I should mention that I studied in Barcelona for 4 months in college, so I guess I expected it to be like what I ate there). My seafood-loving friends got the gambas al ajillo that was recommended, and really liked that.
Overall, I enjoyed it, but I was not wowed. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I think other places like La Tasca and Las Tapas are just as good.
