Vinoco Wine Bar & Tapas Restaurant

Carlos Roman and Alex Meza worked for famed chefs Bobby Flay and David Bouley, respectively, before tapping their experiences and inspirations to open Vinoco Wine Bar & Tapas Restaurant. Chef Cruz Monroy, previously of Blue Water Grill, serves up the warm, yellow-hued restaurant's menu of mostly small plates inspired by traditional Spanish–style tapas, flavors from Greece, Latin America, and Italy, and the desire to be a giant. Flatbreads and empanadas transport tongues to foreign lands, and skewers artfully pair with piquant shooters. Visitors inaugurate their meals with wines by the glass or bottle and wind down afterward by sharing eclectic desserts such as spanish flan or fried Oreos while casually discussing apocalyptic predictions.

Vinoco Wine Bar & Tapas Restaurant

The chalkboard that wraps around the top of Vinoco's bar welcomes guests in five languages, no doubt a nod to its menu, which boasts tapas dishes and entrees representing Spanish, Italian, Greek, Pan-Asian, and Latin American flavors. The New York Times awarded the intimate eatery its top rating, raving that the selections are "head and shoulders above the usual tapas-bar clichés." Chef Carlos Roman—originally from Peru, according to the New York Times —prepares complexly flavored dishes such as rock-shrimp quesadillas with paprika, mango salsa, and monterey cheese. Taking cues from its food-bearing counterpart, the wine list culls nearly 50 varietals imported from Europe, Australia, and South America that can be purchased by the bottle, poured into glasses, or broken over an attractive guest's head to christen them as your new friend.
