When I checked out the place last fall (read my review), I liked the paella but couldn't stand the soulless surroundings. I wrote, "Imagine Spain does have potential -- if the proprietors can make it a place to linger, fine-tune the food, and seriously amp up the service."
Now, founding partner Janet Taverner has teamed up with new business partners, tweaked the menu, and jazzed up the atmosphere. Indeed, the place needed it, and this new twist sounds promising. In a city with so few Spanish options, I'd say it's worth another try.
