Pepin Restaurante Español's menu of braised and marinated meats and atmosphere of lively Spanish music and dance have earned the restaurant ink from the Scottsdale Republic and airtime from Fox10. The cold salpion de mariscos tapas appetizer bathes boiled shrimp, octopus, and calamari in a ribeiro wine vinaigrette. In the paella de arroz negro, black rice, the rebel of grains, subverts the food establishment and awakens taste-bud consciousness with the help of a diverse coalition of activists that includes lobster, shrimp, chorizo, clams, and calamari. Fresh garlic perfumes a breast of chicken sautéed in sherry sauce with mushrooms and leeks in the pollo al jerez entree. As they dine, guests can sip on a pitcher of sangria, the saturated fruit of which floats in fine wine as calmly as a pool noodle floats in a lake of soup.
Flamenco dancers twirl and sashay through the dining room during weekend performances. Diners can hit the floor themselves for after-dinner dancing from 10:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. every Friday and Saturday night.
Pepin Restaurante Español
Since it started topping plates with Spanish cuisine 22 years ago, the award-winning eatery continues to fill its classical-style archways with the scents of tapas, paella, and seafood that sings sea chanteys in Spanish. Should guests on Friday and Saturday nights be inspired by the live weekly flamenco performances, they too can enter the dance floor to show off their salsa, merengue, bachata, and rumba moves until 3 a.m.
