It’s the enchanting North Capitol Hill space wrapped in stained glass and pastel wall murals of Pushkin fairy tales, in a cobbled stone building that looks like it came out of one. Here French-born, Seattle-trained chef Philippe Thomelin (Cascadia, Harvest Vine) brings us Andalusian fare, in the form of affordably priced tapas ($5ish to $15ish) and large plates ($15 to $20) Those plates may be uneven, from a stunning tart albacore ceviche crostini special to a stuffed, breaded pork loin tapas lackluster as a Hot Pocket. But the successes resound with an autumnal substance, and the crowd in here, threading their way through the close tables and cupping their ears to hear one another, doesn’t seem to have noticed.
