"Food was superlative. Ambience was vibrant. Service was attentive. Not a lot of places you get that -- let alone during Restaurant Week. With so many great restaurants in the DMV, I hadn't been to any of the Jaleos in a while. I had forgotten why, when I moved to DC fifteen years ago, Jaleo was my favorite restaurant for years -- only to be replaced by Zatinya:-). I had the beet soup, chicken fritters which sort of mini potpies, house made chorizo, grilled onion and blue cheese -- say what!. I also tried my friends fried dates and bacon - wowza! Top it off with red sangria that was a good as I remember it. Servers were great. Food came quickly. Two different managers came by to check our satisfaction. We were glad kept our reservation despite an icy rain mix and nearly stayed until they shut the place down."
