Gastro Bar en el 38

Gastro Bar en el 38Located just off the lobby of the downtown Tryp Sabana hotel inside the Centro Colon, Gastro Bar en el 38 is a chic, new spot equally suited for casual drinks and appetizers or a more formal meal. The décor stands out, with bold colors, striking lighting and a mod-art deco feel. On weekends, the bar can actually get hopping.

Ceviche

The menu features a mix of tapas and contemporary fusion cuisine.  On a recent visit everything was beautifully presented, tasty and perfectly prepared.

Ceviche came with sides of sweet potato chips, avocado and a corn relish. The traditional Andalusian Gazpacho was hearty and flavorful.

 

Pumpkin AgnolottiPasta options on the wide-ranging dinner menu include pumpkin, ricotta and prosciutto filled agnolotti in a burned butter sauce and orecchiette in a rabbit ragú accompanied by garlic chips.

 

TunaThe thick tuna steak was well-seared and served with a herbs de Provence and watercress pesto, while a tender filet of mahi mahi came with a light romesco sauce over sautéed vegetables and lima beans.

 

The tapas menu features a host of traditional favorites: patatas bravas, tortilla espñola, and  shrimp in garlic sauce, as well as a few dishes with Costa Rican and Caribbean influences, including pati and patacones.

GazpachoThe fairly priced wine list is accompanied by a good and varied selection of wines by the glass.

This place offers live music on Thursday evenings, as well as a daily lunch special (plato ejecutivo).
