Like voluntary tasings and constructive criticism, some meals are best when delivered in small doses. Snack in stride with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a tapas dinner for two at Saffron Restaurant in Queens (up to a $76 value). The dinner includes:

  • Four tapas plates (up to a $64 value)
  • A carafe of house sangria (a $12 value)<p>

Saffron Restaurant’s small-plate sultans craft an epic assortment of tasty tapas plates, traditional Spanish dishes, and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. Gastronomes can scour the menu for shareable portions of seafood, such as crab-cake sliders—which arrive hand in hand with hand-cut fries—or relish in meatier pursuits, such as the spanish meatballs, which double as ping-pong balls in postmeal matches. Vegetarian tapas burst forth with flavors such as the olive tapenade and hummus; the asparagus a la plancha satisfies with tastes of earthy romesco sauce. Saffron’s house-made sangrias include wildberry red, white peach, and the palate-baiting sangria del toro, which combines fruit and brandy with Red Bull to form an energy-boosting elixir. A sun-soaked ambiance welcomes guests into the family-friendly dining room, and plenty of parking ensures patrons won’t tie their raging-bull caravans to table legs during meals.

Saffron Restaurant and Tapas Bar

Amid the whirling of flamenco dancers and lively strumming of guitarists, diners savor and share bites of bright Spanish cuisine presented on minimalistic white plates. The kitchen fills a tapas menu with tasting-size portions of seafood, meat, and vegetable delicacies, enticing guests to indulge in one bite at a time, rounding out each mix-and-match meal with a carafe of housemade sangria or exotic cocktails. Small plates include tzatziki- and cucumber-drizzled bites of lamb, spanish meatballs, and asparagus a la plancha; heartier appetites brave the build-your-own entree option, which allows customers to craft individual meals that include one hearty portion of meat or seafood and one starch, all topped with a choice of sauce or glaze and served with a helping of vegetables. Parties of up to 65 guests can rent out the space for special occasions or have baskets of Spanish specialties brought to off-site locations to add flavorful flair to parties without dousing honored guests in a demi-glace.
