Why it’s rad: I have never felt sad when eating something at Mas. From the start of the meal (always a plate of assorted olives), to whatever dishes I end up selecting, I never feel let down. Their dishes are unique and good quality. I don’t want to eat food in a restaurant that tastes like I could have made it. Anything beyond that, atmosphere, appearance, are all superfluous, really, but I must admit, I love the dining style at Mas. You order as many small dishes as appeal to you, and they are put on the table and shared by everyone, which is arguably the best way to eat–it’s intimate, casual, and lets everyone enjoy whatever dishes they like most.
