Visitors should not take the name of this restaurant and cocktail bar literally, although the food is quite good. A worldly tapas bar, Eat Me serves international cuisine on small plates. The goal is to have diners sample diverse cuisines in bite-sized portions, from street foods to sophisticated dishes from the globe over. In many cases traditional dishes are reinterpreted with modern flair. Dinner served here satisfies the most experienced traveler. Skagenröra, a Swedish seafood and cream soup, is offered along grilled Ibèrico pork steak, for example. The menu, in fact, is organized by world region, from the Americas to Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe. The restaurant is a perfect place to pair a dish with a “culinary cocktail” and tell old travel tales.
