La Española Tapas prompts jubilant social dining with Spanish tapas dishes crafted especially for mixing, mingling, and sharing. Diners can sock-slide over the satiny hardwoods and past the exposed brick of this lively eatery before perusing a menu of hot and cold small plates that beg for slow samples of new flavors. Pair the fruity aromas escaping from a glass of sangria with an imported Spanish cheese plate before savoring the toastiness of flaky empanadas stuffed with chorizo and potato or portobello and cabreles cheese. Skewered dishes house lanced tender meats and seafood such as the beef tenderloin of the pincho de res or the seared scallops of the vieras a la romana. Smothered with a poblano cream sauce, the lobster ravioli packs each bite with more indulgence than a fountain burbling with gold chains.
On weekends, La Española Tapas hosts live musicians from its corner stage. As the dessert spoon cracks the caramelized shell of the crema catalana, catch an acoustical strumming, a jazzy improv, or a vaudeville puppetry act from one of the chefs and a miniature, wooden version of themselves. After 11 p.m. a lounge atmosphere sweeps into La Española, dimming the lights over the original artwork and coursing a sophisticated vibe from the streetside French doors through the outdoor patio.
Though La Española Tapas occasionally offers discounts online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
La Española Tapas
Chefs at La Española Tapas cook authentic and inventive dishes, drawing from the rich palate of Spanish cuisine and the country’s varied climates, landscapes, and cultures. The menu melds classics such as paella with dozens of hot and cold tapas dishes, rich with seafood, vegetables, and spices, and sized perfectly for sharing or creating edible mosaics. Beyond La Española Tapas’ sidewalk al fresco seating, the dining room and lounge spread through airy spaces trimmed with warm wood and cool stone décor. On the weekends, live musicians take the stage, and on the last Friday of each month, the restaurant hosts tablao flamenco nights, filling the atmosphere with energetic staccatos and subjecting the floor boards to its routine durability test.
