When Dave Doyle added a full service Spanish restaurant to his book and music store in 2011, he filled a giant hole that we didn’t even know we had. I can’t imagine JP without Tres Gatos now. It has so seamlessly become a landmark in the neighborhood. Last year Nevin Taylor took over at the helm with great success. It’s such a fun thing to watch a talented young chef stretch their wings right in front of you. The menu isn’t as large anymore, but there aren’t any misses, so you don’t miss all the options. There’s nothing better than looking through old records and sipping on wine while waiting for a table. I’ve always liked the food at Tres Gatos, but I think Nevin [Taylor] has really been doing a phenomenal job since he took over. My favorites dishes are the lamb bocadillo with cilantro salsa verde and the stewed pork with tomato and egg at brunch. Also, the tortilla española is so good, I don’t think they’ll ever be able to take it off the menu. I think the neighborhood would honestly freak out.
