Tapas are small plates designed for snacking and sharing over drinks and with good company. Perfect for the crowd that doesn't like to commit, these culinary creations make mouthwatering meals when you order a variety to pass and share. Tapas teach the importance of sharing to emotionally stunted adults or experimentally socialized pandas and encourage conversation by eliminating the formal aspects of eating from one plate piled high with food that tastes exactly the same from first bite to last. Though many tapas involve rich, buttery, and spicy flavors, the small plates and variety allow you to indulge without feeling bloated or overfull. Nibble, savor, and talk until you're full of food, wine, and intoxicating discourse.
Start your tapas experience with a trio of Manchego, Cabrales, and goat cheese with Spanish picos ($6.95) and a cool gazpacho ($3.95). Pass around white Spanish anchovies with caperberries ($6.50), spinach and mushroom pastries with cumin-garlic aioli ($5.75), and crispy calamari with Romesco sauce ($6.75). Pair your grilled lamb chops with sherry aioli and rioja reduction ($9.95), and mussels in spicy tomato sauce ($6.95) with a glass of wine ($4–$10 per glass), such as the house sangria or bubbly Cava. Finish your evening off with a decadent dessert ($6.25 each), such as bread pudding with caramel sauce or tres leches cake; for a lighter dessert, try the platter of figs, dates, apples, oranges, and baked walnuts, all of which look adorable with googly eyes.
- [BARcelona] has an inviting and almost funky feel from the moment you walk through the doors. The restaurant is painted with teals, golden yellows and rusty reds, invoking a rustic Mediterranean feel. Tabletops are beautifully decorated with bright mosaic tiles, creating mini works of art everywhere you look. – STL Meal Deals
- …paella and things like marinated anchovies and an assortment of sausages are downright seductive. – Gayot
- The goat cheese sauce on garlic bread was a good appetizer and the salmon and tenderloin w/ blue cheese was exceptional. The deserts were to die for, especially the tres leches and the special sangria marinated pears accompanied by blood orange gelato. – Poskarp, TripAdvisor
- This is a very cool place to eat, with great tapas and possibly the best sangria I've ever had. – Scala, TripAdvisor
