About this business
From Our Editors
A collaboration between Joyce Salazar and her husband, Peruvian chef Ricardo, La Casa de Tapas crafts small plates from traditional Peruvian, Spanish, and Mediterranean dishes. The menu, which was nominated for a Silver Spoon Award from Susquehanna Style magazine, ranges from vegetable paella and fried Latin American cheese to slow-cooked filet tips in house cilantro sauce and sautéed shrimp with margarita sauce. Barkeeps complement bites with South American cocktails handcrafted with local fruits and served in a hollowed-out soccer ball. Meanwhile, the resident sommelier curates a wine list of imported reds and whites from South America, Spain, and Italy. Meals unfold in what Flip Side describes as a "chic atmosphere with salmon-colored walls" and upbeat Latin American music playing in the background.
