Locally owned by a Moroccan native, The Pearl is one of Treasure Island's top rated fine dining restaurants where guests enjoy the experience of true dining excellence. A long time favorite of locals and visitors with discriminating taste, the atmosphere at The Pearl is upscale yet casual featuring tempting dishes by Chef Karim and presented by a knowledgeable and friendly staff.
Here's a review:
They have added an extensive tapas menu which is available in the bar. We looked at the tapas menu and salivated! They offer All You Can Eat Tapas for $29 on Tuesday nights.
Beverages not included in the price.
The chef will come out and get a feel for what you want to eat and then will prepare tapas until you are belly-up busted (at least that is what they told me.) I even explained that I am a vegetarian so I don't want to have my palate limited by this "chef selection." She said not to worry..we'd love it. And we always do at The Pearl!
So…no promises on the caliber or quantity of food but I'm willing to give it a try. It is The Pearl, after all. Happy hour drink prices will unfortunately be over. And reiterating…you may only order tapas in the bar. No meals or appetizers from the dinner menu.
I made a reservation for 8 but more people can go. She just cannot promise that we can sit together but it's an intimate area and we won't be far apart. Besides, it is hard to talk to everyone when we are seated at one long table. It might be fun to play musical chairs among the tables since our cost will be the same (except for beverages.)
So although I am limiting this to 8 attendees, more people can be accommodated with the understanding that we won't get to sit at the same table. The bar area mainly had table settings for 4 anyway. Rather a goofy way to go about this but the restaurant put the limitations on us, not I! We'll make it work! The other option is to have another attendee call for a reservation. Let's wait to see how many want to go before deciding what to do. So….please please please, RSVP responsibly. No shows are a bummer for those on the waiting list (there is no RSVP close date this time :-) and for the restaurant, which sometimes brings on extra staff for group dinners.
