I applaud Botana's ambition. I love the idea of a fixed menu, but to pull it off the food has to be outstanding, and it just wasn't the night we were there. Of the five courses only the salad was memorable. It was a pineapple, melon, cucumber, jicama salad with tamarind dressing, and it was really delicious and different. The other courses were certainly edible but nothing special. Also, the night we were there the head chef was not, which was the reason we were told there wasn't a wine pairing option, which I think is a necessity for the fixed menu concept. The service was very good, especially considering there was a total blackout just before we were served our entree. They kept things going by candlelight without missing a beat.
With a little more creativity and spot-on execution in the kitchen this could be a great restaurant. I think I would give it another chance, but first I'd check to see what was on the menu that night.
