What’s not to love about this offbeat eatery? It’s an uncluttered, minimalistic space adorned with purple ceilings, jet-black tables and chairs, and a mix of exposed brick and avocado-colored walls, which feature provocative local art. At Meditrina, you’ll likely order two or three dishes to share, depending on the size of your party, then repeat as necessary; it’s not set up in an appetizer/entree/dessert format. The small-plates concept lends itself beautifully to informal, unrushed and unstructured dining. Start with the roasted-beet carpaccio or cheese plate, which comes with crusty bread and housemade compote, or Meditrina’s antipasto plate, a generous selection of cured meats, cheeses, olives and crusty bread. Some winning hot plates include Ballard Farms pork belly with kimchi, lobster beignets and zippy patatas bravas.
