The other night TWSF and our friend Diane decided to check out Estadio, a new tapas restaurants in Logan Circle. We had read a little about it online, and knew to expect a cool Spanish atmosphere and good, pricey food. Diane and I headed our by ourselves while Chuck did his fantasy football draft. I don't know why he would choose make believe football over wine and girl talk..... but he was able make it in time for what I thought was a great dining experience.
We started with a glass of white wine (cheapest one on the menu, only $4.50), cheese, and a salad. Diane was extremely disappointed in her beet salad, but I was pretty happy with my slab of Manchego cheese, toasts, date, and jam. Although I wouldn't recommend it to split, it was enough for one person. I also ordered a fig filled with blue cheese crumbles (note: I hate blue cheese and would not have ordered this had I known the translation from Spanish (Chuck's note: azul queso??)), wrapped in prosciutto. Considering it was 1 fig, for $2.50 I thought it was really overpriced (although I'm sure it had top quality ingredients). I do like fig though and the blue cheese wasn't overpowering, so I enjoyed my one bite.

If you like tapas and understand that you are going to drop a few $$ for several dishes whose quantities add up to the size of a normal entrée, go to Estadio and be sure to get the tortilla Espanola.
