I'd never been to Tackle Box before, so I can't say how much of what was done to the place, but it looked good. The kitchen was sparkly-clean.
We started out with the three dips from the Bandolero pop-up at 918 F St., but they were different. Mike had obviously taken the time to tweak the recipes a bit and they were better for it.
Restaurant work ain't easy...that's Elizabeth Parker to the left and James composing himself in the forefront.
Spicy mango gelatto. Really? Yep. It works too. First bite? No detectable heat. 2nd bite? Just a tingle at the back of your throat. 3rd? A little stronger. Very pleasant.
