So I’ve come to realize that I must be la reina de gays, since they always find me. Hence how I ended up here at el Cid last night. I was looking for a bite to eat and reading the menu when the very gay host came out and encouraged me to come in. I orders the tapas (since that’s what this place was about) and a drink. The service was impeccable but the food was ok. They start you out with a snack dish of green olives and potato salad (I ordered another plate it was so good). The actual tapas dishes were ok, but I rounded out my meal with dessert. I ordered the house special, which was bread marinaded in a wine served with Ice cream and a raspberry sauce. Cray! All in all not bad if your in the Chelsea area and want a bite. 3 out of 5 forks.
