What You'll Get


Jump to: Reviews | Thomas Paine, Inventor of Tapas

Start a grassroots campaign for flavorful food sharing that’s equal parts communism and cronyism with today’s Groupon to Sabores. For $15, you’ll get $30 worth of tapas, sangria, and paella to nibble, pass, and bump foreheads over at an unhurried Andalusian pace. Located in Cleveland Park, Sabores is a Metro-accessible mecca for small-plate sharing, sangria sipping, and lively conversation.

Much like the Cheez-It, tapas are small containers of exceptional flavor. Served hot or cold on small plates, tapas combine the flavors of Spanish cuisine in sweet, savory, and spicy combos to suit a variety of tastes and temperaments. Tapas are the original bar food, and can be enjoyed as a delightful snack over wine and conversation or as a leisurely dinner that dirties more plates than your uncle’s pot-bellied pig. Order the cheese plate ($11) to share with friends as you peruse the menu, and pass around seared scallops ($12) and lamb taquitos with salsa verde ($10). Try crispy potatoes with romesco aioli ($6) alongside mussels in white wine ($11), and fight your friends for the last bite of the wild-mushroom quesadilla with truffle oil ($8).

Tapas are served at a leisurely pace to facilitate conversation, so they superbly suit groups, romantic dates, and romantic group job interviews. Teach your greedy gramps the virtues of sharing before it’s too late, or win over your enemies with offerings of empanadas ($7 vegetarian, $8 beef). If you’re concerned about the added cost of washing extra dishes or your mom never taught you sharing, Sabores offers plenty of delicious large plates to fill you up. Try the Argentinean steak and chorizo sausage with chimichurri ($24) or Sabores’ succulent ropa vieja ($15). Pepita-crusted salmon ($19) makes a nice light meal, and a seared half chicken with rice ($17) is perfect for picky eaters. Make baby steps toward sharing with the seafood paella for two ($45), but keep your chocolate torte ($6) or pineapple cajeta ($6) all to yourself.

Reviews

Daily Candy, DC City Blog, Gayot, and the Washington Post reviewed Sabores' swanky setting and finger-licking food:

  • ...if I closed my eyes for a few moments in the warm DC night I could almost imagine being in a trendy upscale lounge in Miami surrounded by all sorts of beautiful people. – Jiyan, DC City Blog
  • At $8, the chupa de cangrejo y camaron -- shrimp and crab soup with delicate sauteed sweet peppers, poached egg and a touch of cream -- is delicious. For $10, the four seared scallops with a silky potato puree and caper-dotted lemon sauce is equally good. – Eve Zibert, Washington Post

Yelpers give Sabores 3.5 stars, while two TripAdvisors give it 3.5 owl eyes. A Kudzu reviewer gives it a solid four stars, and some Google Maps and OpenTable diners left reviews:

  • Great for a date or special event. Chef puts a great spin on classic latin favorites such as ropa vieja, feiojada and ceviche. nice wine selection as well as an assortment of classic latin cocktails such as mojitos...Can get busy but have always gotten a table within a few minutes. – IloveChrysler, TripAdvisor
