Servicio Continuo -let's eat and drink until 3AM!
Servicio Continuo was love at first sight for me. I had passed by the place a few times and thought it looked so inviting. When we finally decided we'd go there I was not disappointed.
The place is cosy with dim lights and nice music in the background. The staff is so helpful and friendly and made us feel right at home. We got a nice table in a corner and started off with drinks. I ordered a Sazerac and the barman approached me so I could choose if I preferred it with bourbon or cognac, and when I chose cognac I was also presented with several different ones. The staff takes good care of you, I'll tell you that.
And we ordered food too! We chose lots of dishes to share: home made fries with béarnaise, chicken liver pate with pickled onion, green curry mussels, and Cantonese pork ribs with broccoli. It was all excellent, I've missed béarnaise sauce a lot so it hit the spot, the green curry mussels were just spicy enough, and the ribs were perfectly sticky and even the broccoli tasted great. For dessert we chose the Baba au Rhum, a good way to end a great meal.
Servicio Continuo is great for a date night, we went when they opened so it was nice and quiet when we were there, later it gets very busy which means it's a good place if you want to go and have fun with your friends and have a drink or several and some good food too. And you can do that until 3AM!
