Unlike having bicycles, apartments, and guard dogs, having many small plates can be just as effective as one big one.

As typed about in the Orlando Business Journal, the bustle around Ceviche Tapas Bar & Restaurant's historic Church Street Station location prompted the eatery to open its doors at midday to treat lunchers to an explosive flavor fusion of Northern Spain and Catalan cuisine. Beneath cathedral ceilings, diners can peruse a lunch menu of hot and cold tapas before setting taste buds loose on cheese plates composed of manchego, mahon, tetilla, and cabrales ($12.95) or a grouper bocadillo constructed with freshly baked bread ($8.95). Tongues safely ensconced in floaties dog-paddle in a ceviche of shrimp, scallops, squid, and fish ($9.95), and forks sink their famished tines into air-dried spanish ham ($9.95). On Sundays, guests explore the brunch menu, where the french omelet’s goat cheese and avocado ($5.95) vie for valuable stomach real estate. Eggs Benedict ($6.95) perch on a toasted croissant and chirp serenades to broiled crabmeat and grilled tomato, and the barcelona waffle ($5.95) luxuriates under warm chocolate and caramel sauces for a gustatory experience sweeter than gnawing on a gingerbread house built by Gaudí.
Ceviche Tapas Bar & Restaurant
Ceviche Tapas Bar & Restaurant not only imports ingredients and products, but also recipes. With roots in northern Spain and Catalonia, these dishes come together on a menu of more than 100 hot and cold tapas selections, along with paella and cazuela. Paella, a widely varied rice dish cooked at length in a wide pot over open flame, can contain Serrano ham, scallops, pork, chorizo, and saffron rice the stunning golden hue of an alchemist's magazine advertisements. Though the restaurant spans multiple locations, each one presents guests with some charming element: a poolside patio at the Tampa location, a central tapas bar in Orlando, and a flamenco room in St. Petersburg. Meanwhile, no matter the location, events bring about live music and joviality, all supported by an ample list of Spanish and Portuguese wines.
