Trae is at it again! Today’s rave restaurant review is about Block Table & Tap at 4172 N. Mesa Street in El Paso. With rustic dishes, handcrafted cocktails, beer on tap and delicious wine, Trae was not only impressed, but already making plans for a repeat visit. Check out his comments below.
2/25/15 – Midweek Date Night at Block Table & Tap
Wednesday night with no teenagers to feed or help with homework, so my wife and I decided to try Block Table & Tap for a midweek date night and quiet dinner. We walked into a clean and inviting environment with various sporting events on the numerous TV screens. Surprisingly no cartoons or Xboxes being played! We were first approached by a sweet server named Vanessa, who immediately, upon request, set us up with a bottle of 2011 Valmoissine Pinot Noir that was at a proper serving temperature!
Our first course, not counting the Pinot, was the Devils on Horseback (blue cheese stuffed dates wrapped in crispy bacon) and Buratta & Bread (burrata cheese on micro greens dressed with blood orange oil and grilled ciabatta). We needed to ask for the bread to be crisped up, but Vanessa was very helpful and it quickly came back two fold crispy.
For our entrees my wife and I enjoyed two perfectly lightly dressed Caesar Salads with grilled charbroiled chicken which was outstanding.
All in all this was the most relaxing and enjoyable evening that we could have asked for on an uneventful night.
I would highly recommend this restaurant for any day or hang-over morning for their infamous Posole Soup that is out of this world on Saturday or “Sinday” mornings. It’s a
must try, even if you are not a sinner any day of the week or night, but especially if you are!!
If you get a chance to visit The Block Table and Tap, let them know that Trae Apodaca sent
you. And remember if you are going out to eat tonight…don’t just eat your meal, experience the meal and that will make it all the better. Until next time, Buen Provecho!
