The Short Or­der

Pasatiempo - - Restaurant Review -

The his­toric El Nido res­tau­rant in Te­suque has re­opened and is op­er­ated by Tom Vi­mont of Steak­smith at El Gan­cho. It now serves more fam­ily-ori­ented fare like ribs, burg­ers, and egg­plant Parme­san as well as steaks and seafood. Grilled items like prime rib and fish are well pre­pared,

but ser­vice can be a se­ri­ous prob­lem. Drinks are well made and rea­son­ably priced. Wine can be a good deal. It is a res­tau­rant in search of a chef — and maybe a man­ager, too.

Rec­om­mended: prime rib and lob­ster tails.

Rat­ings range from 0 to 4 chiles. This re­flects the re­viewer’s ex­pe­ri­ence with re­gard to food and drink, at­mos­phere, ser­vice, and value.
