Like voluntary tasings and constructive criticism, some meals are best when delivered in small doses. Snack in stride with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Spanish tapas and bistro cuisine at La Diosa Cellars.
Owner Sylvia McPherson whips up authentic Spanish tapas and bistro dishes, stacking La Diosa Cellars' menu with sundry shareable plates. Diners introduce mouths to the southwestern-style Sassy crab cakes ($12), served with a reminder to not get fresh with its tangy double-citrus sauce. The fresca pizza ($9) festoons its vegetarian-friendly disk with dried fruits over brie, and the chicken curry ensalada ($8) tosses grapes and celery with chilled chicken morsels. Taste buds can hunt through ancho chili shredded beef for golden raisins and caramelized onions inside the Lorena's pastry pocket ($8), or sample the Albondigas de Madrid ($9), which loads meatballs with diced red onion, garlic, and jalapeño, all dressed in marsala sauce and a ravishing flamenco dress.
Within La Diosa Cellars, patrons nestle into its bohemian retreat brimming with local artwork, plush furniture, and star-shaped lanterns studded with multicolored stones, each of which presumably holds one-eighth of a genie. Customers can check the live-music calendar for upcoming dinner performances.
