This place used to be really cool, with fresh interesting dishes, and upbeat staff.

We thought we’d go back, and thought it was interesting that the place was *completely* empty during its happy hour. But we didn’t overthink it, and found a seat, and ordered some stuff.

The guac... huge miss. Nothing popped. Everything tasted like it had been sitting pre-prepared for a day in the fridge. Avocado has a slight dark tinge. Cilantro and pomegranate tasted flat.

I had the Short Rib Tamarindo. It was ok.
Wife had Potato Tolled Tacos. Again: they tasted like they were prepared a day or two ago.

The staff was ambivalent. They were more enthusiastic about chatting amongst themselves than with the few customers in the place by the time we left.

What happened to this place?

Probably not coming back.
