The Short Or­der

Pasatiempo - - RESTAURANT REVIEW -

Este­van’s sec­tion of Wash­ing­ton Street is a lit­tle qui­eter than the area closer to the Plaza, and the restau­rant’s

dé­cor is un­fussy and el­e­gant. Cu­ri­ously, as the food is so ex­cel­lent, the restau­rant rarely seems very crowded, and it is pos­si­ble — and ad­vis­able — to linger over a mem­o­rable meal and some wine. Chef Este­van Gar­cia’s past life as a Fran­cis­can monk is well doc­u­mented, and his re­gard for grace and sim­plic­ity are ap­par­ent on his plates. Rec­om­mended: pas­tel de gua­camole, Bolog­nese pasta, rain­bow trout, posole, Este­van’s en­chi­lada, goat milk flan, and al­mond cake.
