Unlike having bicycles, apartments, and guard dogs, having many small plates can be just as effective as one big one. Savor the simple complexity of several small plates with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of tapas, salads, and more at Evoo Tapas Bar in Buford.
Evoo Tapas Bar tips the taste-bud scales with a menu of small plates, large plates, and tossed salads. After choosing from more than 20 tapas, diners dig into the cured meat board colorfully composed of violet mustard, cornichons, and blueberry compote ($9), or the popcorn shrimp and grits ($9.50) mixed up with popcorn plucked from authentic vines. Greens eaters can crunch their way through a beet salad ($7.50) or a crab salad of baby greens, lemon gastrique, tomatoes, avocado, and basil buds ($12). If appetites still haven't faded, customers can investigate a carefully selected selection of six large plates to restock belly shelves. The poached Scottish salmon ($22) comes garnished with a sesame skin chip, fingerling potatoes, plus oro blanco and ruby-red grapefruit. The Osso Buco short rib ($19) or 8-ounce Black Angus fillet ($23) make friends with meat-friendly mouths and rev up creative juices with artful plating.
