222 Lyon Tapas Bar

Going to 222 Lyon Tapas Bar for the first time feels more like going to an old friend's house than visiting an unfamiliar eatery. The restaurant inhabits a 19th-century home, where small tables pepper a 30-person dining room that bears a carved-wood fireplace. A larger booth rests in a nook framed by stained-glass windows, which filter ample sunlight onto a tabletop strewn with Spanish-tinged plates of pork tarragon and smoked salmon. Daily offerings and shape-shifting fonts enliven the regular menu, whose smaller portions encourage ordering several plates to share with dining companions. Fresh fruit, chocolate, and real cream build a succinct selection of desserts, and a litany of wines balance out overseas spices via 6- or 9-ounce glasses or bottles.

Great service and tasty food
Noga Z. · August 6, 2015
The food and atmosphere was great. The waitress was terrific. Why bother with take out even if that is possible. More fun to eat at the restaurant.
