the other night, nins made her usual complaint that "there is nothing to eat in the house." being stranded in the neighborhood for the evening meant finding an appealing restaurant nearby that wouldn't hurt our wallets and have a median age less than 65. we were pleased to try solera at 53st+3av. the dinner menu is perhaps too expensive, but the tapas were better priced and solidly executed. the croquetas and stuffed piquillo peppers were delicious. the atmosphere is nice enough though suffers from a bit of midtown corporate poisoning.
overall: good for a rezzie-less dinner, but expensive.
