Week in Reviews: Cook at Convivio

convivioopen.jpgThe Chronicle's Alison Cook went looking for tapas at Convivio for this week's review and found "the two founding principals of the restaurant [...] had parted company two weeks before, and that the split was not amicable." The division left much to be desired on the plate when she describes an octopus dish as "a gorgeous flop," a dish of meatballs "stiff and unappealing," and a montadito, "dry and miserable." However, she finds a ray of light in their mushroom dishes which they do "consistently well," and hopes they can fix their issues so she can place them on her "rotation list if the food becomes more reliable."
