We had been hearing a lot of buzz about Tabla's $24 (now $28) three course deal, and of course we had to add the wine paring option! Mark had the grilled octopus with alioli paired with very dry sherry. The octopus was amazing, but in my opinion, nothing goes with sherry (although Mark swears he liked it). We tried a grilled watermelon and tomato salad, large ravioli containing an egg sprinkled with a wonderful Parmesan cheese that I'm still dreaming about, melt in your mouth duck confit, and several other excellent dishes. Needless to say there was no room for dessert, so I guess we'll have to go back.
