Please get the bacon wrapped dates stuffed with chorizo. They are incredible and it's hard not to sop your bread up with that sauce.
I was also impressed with the chicken thigh. A lot of the other small dishes were good but not amazing, incredible, stupendous.
I think Avec gets a lot of hype and though we didn't have to wait too long, other diners did. It's a good place but not a must for me anymore (again, there will be varying opinions on this). If you do go, sit at the bar. It might be a better pick than at the crowded picnic type tables.
