I started out the evening with a Spicy Seniorita which was very good. I
was surprised that the spiciness of the jalapeno and cranberry juice
went well together! The guacamole was one of the best ones that I have
had in a while. For my
entrée – I had the salmon entrée which had a chipotle cauliflower puree
and quinoa croquettes which I loved! The salmon was a little
undercooked for my liking in the middle but it was still good. The
atmosphere here was nice and open – but all the windows
made it quite chilly on an evening where it was -4 degrees out. I will
have to try Verde again in the summer!
liked the revised menu that focuses on upscale tacos at $5 each. I had
the Barbacoa, which was chili rubbed beef with lots of cilantro,
jalapeno and feta,
and the Chorizo which had a really nice cilantro yogurt to temper the
heat of the chorizo. We split a few orders of the brussel sprouts. I
am a big fan of roasted sprouts and they only get better when you add
herb ricotta topping. The guacamole was loaded
with chunks of avocado. We also split the Queso Fundido---it was
tasty. It would have been nice to give us 6 tortillas since there were 6
in our party. I ordered the margaritas which were on a Happy Hour
special. They were tart and a nice bit of the tropics
on such a cold winter night.
really liked the guacamole and the cheese appetizer. For my entrée, I
had a chorizo taco, barbacoa taco and the side of brussel sprouts.
delicious. The atmosphere was great and so was our server!
