Ceviche Tapas Bar & Restaurant's culinary masterminds fuse traditional recipes from northern Spain and Catalonia into a modern tapas menu of more than 100 different hot and cold dishes. The dinner menu's ceviche de la casa ($9.95) submerges shrimp, scallops, squid, and fish beneath a sea of mouth-puckering lime juice that is populated with fresh reefs of diced tomatoes and scallions, just like the real ocean. Practiced platers dish out delectable portions of pesto-topped, cream-sherry-coated chicken with the pollo al Jerez ($7.95 for tapas) and a cheese-and-veggie stuffing rushes into the sherry-drizzled embrace of mushrooms in the portobello relleno ($8.95). The brunch menu commingles choice tapas selections alongside classic egg, bread, and fruit breakfast concoctions, engineered to give eaters the energy to pole vault into their neighbors' swimming pools afterward.
Each of Ceviche's locations resides within a distinct building decorated for authenticity and interest, such as Tampa's covered poolside patio or the glossy floors and arced windows of St. Petersburg's flamenco room. Tile frescoes twirl through archways in Clearwater, as dark woods and brick fireplaces add a stately air to mid-meal arguments about whose dad is best at video games.
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.
