Nopa: So Fresh and So Clean
I finally made it to Nopa the other day ... after years of hearing various friends rattle on and on about the wonders of the place. I certainly had every reason to believe the food was good after having dropped in for some super-creative and delicious cocktails with said friends now and again. Of course, great beverages do not always mean great food. But, in this case, it did. The crispy flatbread (this one with paper-thin slices of summer squash and a generous sprinkling of pinenuts) was fantabulous—loaded with the season's bounty. It was gone in 2 minutes, maybe 3. Clean flavors, fresh ingredients, generous portions ... these are a few of my favorite things.
