I went to the new Spanish restaurant, Olde Madrid on 6th Street, last night fully expecting lousy service. Has anyone else noticed the lingering bitterness among the Spanish over the pummelling we gave them in the Spanish-American War? Get over it already!
But seriously, I was expecting lousy service because new restaurants in Racine often get huge crowds when they are just opening and before they have worked out the kinks.
There were some service issues, none of which really bothered me. We were asked to move to a smaller table after having already been seated, and bar service was slow. But the staff was working hard and they were very pleasant under the difficult circumstances.
And the food was good. They gave us complimentary hummus that we both liked and we had the traditional pealla (sp?) dish which was excellent.
Ambiance was also nice. Give it a try.
