Matilda, located on East 11th Street, has both an eclectic menu and decor. Bright pops of pink and lime green are offset by exposed brick walls and modern white tables (so modern the dessert menu is actually part of the table).
Our bottle of red and Guacamole Alla Toscana arrived right away. I'm pretty picky about my guac—not too chunky, with just a kick of spice—and Matilda's version was spot on. Flecks of red pepper and basil kept the dip from being too bland. I would have preferred more chips, but the focaccia wasn't bad albeit slightly soggy.
