Masa 14 opened a couple of weeks ago to much ado on the 14th St. Corridor. They had a big launch party, they hosted "The Satorialist" book signing party, etc. etc. So yea. It's definitely a cool spot.
I love a new restaurant and I like to try new places in the 'hood. Some stick, some don't. This place will definitely remain on my rotation.
Not only do I *LOVE* the extra long bar, the food is amazing. I had my doubts. Asian/Latino fusion?? There's been some baaaaaddddd restaurants that tried that concept. (Mercado, anyone?) But Sandoval and Okachi do a great job melding the two flavor profiles. My current favorite: serrano ham flatbread with arugula, lime, goat cheese and cantalope. Sounds like a lot of ingrediants, doesn't it? It's a perfect bite and it's heavenly.
Next time you're strolling down 14th St. in search of a bite or a cocktail, give it a whirl.
