The review: This was one successful TiT. After work I headed over to their bar next door, Barcito to wait for Weasel to arrive -- love this spot! Open air and great cocktail menu made for a perfect pre-dinner treat. We grabbed oysters at the bar (buck a shuck 5-7 EVERY DAY) and enjoyed their "little twins" drink option -- 2 1/2 glass cocktails, which allowed us to try [too] many! Very delicious. We then got seated and enjoyed the rest of dinner -- highlights were definitely the gnocchi and corn. SO good - a must for anyone going to Tavernita. Thanks for joining Weas -- until next time!
