It's not often that you find yourself at brand new restaurant feeling very much at home. But that is the feeling you get at Cafe Tapeo, a new tapas restaurant in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Maybe it's the cafe style seating outside or the restaurant itself with its exposed brick and hardwood floors and candlelit tables. It's just very inviting, and a welcome edition to a part of town where new restaurants seem to be popping up every day. Equally welcoming is the food. We enjoyed crispy crab fritters ($6), tasty bacon wrapped shrimps with a spicy dipping sauce ($9), a decadent sandwich made with serano ham called the Croque Monsieur ($6), and chorizos cooked up with figs and "love" ($7). The restaurant also had a nice selection of wines, including organic choices, although the staff could be a bit more knowledgable. But after a glass or two of a good Merlot, who cares?
