Sevilla 2.0


Published:

After a $2.7 million re-do, we’re pleased to see that it’s not just the tri-level space that’s been spruced up at Café Sevilla’s new downtown location. Chef Cesar Castillo’s revamped menu has some serious wow factor, starting with the dazzling Brocheta. Shrimp, lamb, and flatiron steak are doused with either a citrus or honey-mint marinade and grilled on skewers, then served dangling from custom metal stands at your table, dripping in all their glory like edible chandeliers. Old favorites like the paella Valenciana, which Castillo estimates has been ordered one million times across the restaurant’s three locations, still reign on the new menu, too. After dinner, head downstairs to the Sevilla Nightclub for dance lessons with Valerie (Tuesday-Thursday evenings at 8:30 p.m.). Café Sevilla is now open at 355 Fifth Avenue in the Gaslamp.
