Tarla Mediterranean Grill, Napa CA

This dish was very interesting. It was on the acidic side and had a lot of different flavors and textures. My first inclination is to say that it was too busy and too acidic. I wish the scallops were a more prominent flavor, but they kind of got lost amongst everything else.

Grilled Shannon Ranch lamb shish kebab - Tarla Mediterranean Grill
Marinated with Mediterranean herbs and spices, kale, Rancho Gordo cassoulet beans, basil-mint chimichurri sauce. $22
Tarla Mediterranean Grill, Napa CA

Mmm, this lamb was really good! It was tender and juicy and so flavorful. I think a bit of tzatziki on the plate would have knocked it out of the park. I thought the kale and beans were tasty too.
