Ficelle is worth the drive. After eating at all the other Greater Sacramento Area tapas restaurants, none of them are even in the same class as this restaraunt. Sure--they are much closer to the Tapas bars that I ate in while in Spain--quick dishes, with a little flavor. I would be OK with this, except all the prices are on par with Ficelle. I would rather sacrafice the authenticity of "quickly prepared" and "acceptably flavorful" for "tapas of the gods" and "Singular best meal of the year". Just eat here.
