What You'll Get
Tapas, like books, cars, and husbands, are designed to be shared with those closest to you. Indulge in the best of Spanish-style sharing with today’s Groupon to Judy's on Cherry in Reading. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get $50 worth of Mediterranean-inspired dinner fare (5 p.m.–9:30 p.m. Tuesday–Thursday; 5 p.m.–10 p.m. Friday & Saturday).
- For $10, you get $20 worth of Mediterranean-inspired lunch fare (Tuesday–Friday, 11:30 a.m.–2 p.m.).
Judy's on Cherry fills dinner plates, lunch plates, and small-but-supportive tapas plates with Mediterranean-inspired, fine dining flair. Like most children who take pottery classes, chef, owner, and Reading native Judy Henry tends a 6,000-pound ceramic oven, where most of the menu items emerge. Evening diners choose from an array of 15 diminutive dishes, such as roasted asparagus bundles, adorned simply with sea salt, lemon aioli, and parmesan ($7.95), or spicy, stouthearted papas bravas, combining fingerling potatoes, large shrimp, and cured chorizo ($10.95). Thin, crispy-crusted chicken saltimbocca pizza leaps out of the hearth-fire oven screaming about being tasty ($10.95), the balsamic braised-lamb shank relaxes in a bed of creamy cheese polenta with roasted cipollini onion pillows ($25.95), and the frenched pork chop gets tipsy on a peach-bourbon glaze and admits a crush on its lyonnaise potato and swiss chard platemates ($19.95).
Amidst the vaulted wood ceilings and exposed brick walls of this former farmers market, lunchers can select from an abbreviated menu that includes sandwiches such as the grilled roast-beef wrap with horseradish aioli ($8.95) and the combo of mini turkey dijonnaise on brioche with soup ($8.95). Baked truffled mac 'n' cheese infuses culture into a classic comfort food ($9.95), and the mediterranean chicken salad flows through the Strait of Gibraltar out into the Atlantic, carrying asparagus, prosciutto, artichokes, olives, and fontina cheese flotsam ($10.95).
