My second pick for restaurant week was Fonda Del Sol the modern Spanish on Park Ave across from Grand Central. Some of the food here was sensational and other dishes missed the boat. My bread took a while to arrive. The dishes here are tapas style so for Restaurant week it is two appetizers, two entrees and one dessert. The gazpacho and ensaladilla tuna(tuna salad) were both winners. The gazpacho with heirloom tomatoes and cucumbers was delectable, though served a little messy. The tuna served with tomatoes and carrots was delicate and tasty. Next two were the meatballs and the paella. The pork meatballs in a sweet sauce and mahon cheese was uber tasty. The paella was dry and flavorless. Churros were divine- hot, doughy, sweet and cinnamonny. A great finsh.
