While full moons turn men into werewolves, eclipses turn poor conversationalists into witty rhetoricians. Gain street cred as an amateur expert lecturer with today's Groupon. For $10, you get $25 worth of sophisticated, inventive tapas and equally urbane wines from Eclipse di Luna. This deal is good at either of Eclipse di Luna's Park Place and Miami Circle locations. This deal is not valid on Mondays, nor can it be redeemed for takeout.
Nightly live music and festive ornamentation neatly match the bursting colorations of Eclipses' tapas—small, sharable portions of Spanish flavors born to mix, match, and clumsily feed to one another across a romantically dimmed corner table. Gather with friends over a glowing votive-lit table and a potent plate of grilled lamb chops with sun-dried tomatoes and goat cheese ($6.50); delve into the mystery of the paella negra with black squid ink, shrimp, squid, mussels, and artichokes ($20 for an ample portion that serves two or more); or toe the line between sweet and savory with mini empanadas stuffed with spinach, hazelnut, raisins, cheese, and garlic aioli ($4). Menus vary based on the location; click here for the Park Place menu and here for Miami Circle.
Wines journey to Eclipse from across the globe, traveling in herds overland from California or swimming the dangerous currents of the Atlantic on their way from France and Italy. Celebrate your survival of another day on the ol' humidity farm with the modest 14 Hands from California ($22 a bottle), or commemorate a successful test of your model-rocket interceptor system with a Washington Hills Riesling ($28).
- …the tapas, from chef Ofer Ayal, is every bit as solid as the original's, from scrumptious patatas bravas with romesco sauce to signature dishes like fabada — a hot mess of fava beans and sauce sofregit (onions, garlic, tomatoes, sage, parsley) over wilted arugula doused with lemon oil. Yummers. – Meredith Ford, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
- The server was very patient and kind as we learned the menu. Dishes came out of the kitchen very quickly and were beyond fantastic. – OpenTable user who dined on 2/26/2010
- Small plates packed with big flavors transform Eclipse from into a restaurant that's worth a special trip. Since it's a tapas restaurant, you'll be able to sample a wide range of dishes. Serrano ham comes sliced paper-thin and garnished with roasted peppers and dense, fruity olives. The pungency of fresh horseradish transforms flaky bites of smoked mackerel. Rounds of seared rare tuna are perfumed with rich Moroccan spices. A fresh, pretty salad of diced tomatoes and red onion perfectly offsets a plate of lightly fried calamari. – Citysearch editorial
