La Gran Tapa
The menu at La Gran Tapa features a wide range of appetizer-sized portions that are fun to either share or horde at your end of the table. Nibble on the imported artisan selections of a European cheese platter ($10) while half-repeating half-remembered jokes from your freshman philosophy professor. Nurse an order of New Zealand lamb lollipops ($12) while taking in the cool tomato-garlic-accented scent of your bowl of Gaspacho ($4). Those held hostage by their belligerent appetites need look no further than grande-sized dishes such as the Paella Valencia ($25), the crown jewel in the crown of Spanish dining, filled with chicken, mussels, clams, chorizo, and lobster stock on top of a bed of saffron rice.
