Restaurant Addict: Oba

Oba has been one of my favorite restaurants for a while.  I think this description from Zagat says it all: 
Food: 26 Decor: 26 Service: 25
A “vacation for your taste buds” is provided by the “inventive, perfectly executed” Nuevo Latino plates on offer at this “lively” midpriced Pearl District resto-lounge; while “professional” service draws “romantic” types and
other serious diners to the expansive “cheerful and colorful” dining room,
“dangerous margaritas” fuel a “high-energy” bar scene that’s “young”, “hip” and “happy.”

Now that I live so close I want to try some new things.  The Happy Hour menu at Oba is a great way to sample their food.  I went with a friend and she said the fish tacos were delicious..  I had Arepas with Yucatan Pork, griddled Colombian corn cakes topped with achiote braised pork.  They were so good I can't stop thinking about it! The house wines for $4 a glass include a Pinot Gris and that never happens.  I can't wait to go back!
