City Pages' Description

If you find yourself in need of a nosh well after midnight, your choices are often relegated to tots and chicken tenders. That menu is suitable in some cases, but if what you crave is a more grown-up option like seared scallops with almond gazpacho and tart green grapes, preferably with a nice gimlet, head to Nightingale in Whittier where the full menu is served until 2:00 AM. Nightingale features different types of small plates: sophisticated bruschettas, traditional Spanish tapas like spicy albondigas, and composed veggie plates like roasted beets with beer gastrique. So you can plan to do the mix-and-match thing, or go for one of the more generously portioned entrees like grilled quail or the burger with aged cheddar and malt vinegar aioli. Sunday brunch has recently been added to their lineup, and rumor has it their Michelada is as good as their Bloody Mary.

    Our favorite is the creamy texture of the mollusk while Nightingale pairs hard-seared scallops (still wobbly on the inside) with a combo of sour green grapes & a toasty, almond-thickened gazpacho.

    Bruschetta with mushrooms is to die for!

  • Mpls D. on 10/09/12

    Make sure to try one of their classic cocktails to enhance the old school charm type of experience!

    Get the fresh ricotta with nuts, seeds and mint bruschetta. The ricotta is made in house and it's amazing!!
