MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Darling and diminutive, Cervo’s is perfect for date night. The dining room’s canary-yellow booths, mosaic tiles and wood paneling will give you all those cozy feels. The menu is heavy on seafood, so if plump mussels and tender scallops don't whet your appetite, this isn't the place for you. The kitchen's Spanish and Portuguese influences are evident in dishes such as black bean stew loaded with shell-on shrimp. Then mussels escabeche with beans will have you breaking off pieces of bread to sop up every drop of that olive oil-drizzled goodness. Keep the bread close when tucking in to beef tartare with clams-another dish that is bound to sate your date. The all-Spanish wine list boasts affordability while the by-the-glass selection is full of surprises.
