Flor de Sol is a Spanish standout in TriBeCa. Zagat calls it “sexy” and “romantic”; I would agree.
I had lunch there today with a group from work. My assistant, who is Hispanic, adores the place. She highly recommended the sangria, but that wasn’t in the cards with an afternoon of work still to go. On her recommendation, I tried the filet of sole (just $11.95 at lunch), which was light, tender, and just slightly buttery. At dinner, they serve the sole in a banana sauce ($22), which I had several years ago, and was so memorable I can still taste it to this day.
Several reviews have mentioned that Flor de Sol gets noisy and crowded at night, but it wasn’t busy for lunch. Our food came out quickly—always critical for a working lunch.
