Hot potato, the earliest dish designed to be passed, is nearly extinct due to the constant ravages of grade school appetites. Today's Groupon revives shifting sustenance: for $14, you get $30 worth of Spanish cuisine, tapas, and drinks at Tapas Gitana in Northfield. Today's deal is valid for $5 martinis on Wednesdays, but not with any other offers.

Chef and owner Andrew Novak created Tapas Gitana to be a private piece of Barcelona in the northland. After touring Spain, he smuggled back a menu of his own versions of the cuisine, as well as an all-Spanish wine list (bottles $30+). Nibble and pass plates of traditional tapas, such as grilled slices of chorizo and morcilla sausage ($5.50) and baked dates snuggled by bacon ($5.50). Saffron rice sets up the selection of paellas, including the vegetariana (bell peppers, onions, and assorted seasonal vegetables, $9.95 per person), and the Valenciana (chicken, shrimp, mussels, and clams, $13.95 per person). Entrees come in tapas-size small plates or in twice-as-tastable portions, such as grilled sea scallops assembled over sautéed spinach, in the vieiras con espinaca ($8.95).

Live guitar music fills the warm-toned dining room on Wednesday nights, when martinis are only $5, and on Thursday evenings. Bring your dog or borrow a co-worker's pettable plant on Tuesdays, when dogs and their owners take residence on Tapas Gitana's patio.

Tapas Gitana is closed on Mondays.

Reviews

Yelpers give Tapas Gitana an average of 4.5 stars, as do Citysearchers.

  • Everything here is seasoned perfectly. Our staple cold tapas dish is the patatas alioli, and this place was the best hands down! – Monica K., Yelp
  • Regular menu has real winners (like the dates!) but the specials are always tempting. Clean, friendly, delicious--it's easy to drop a lot of money when you're having fun, but still quite economical. – rosequeen, Citysearch

Tapas Gitana

At Tapas Gitana, waves of steam steeped in saffron, chorizo, and seafood stock rise from paella pans and dishes featured on ABC's Hungry Hound to carry palates away to Barcelona. Cold tapas twine ingredients such as avocado, seranno ham, and manchego cheese, and hot tapas exhibit tiger prawns that fuel the sharing and conversation of small-plate dining. On the outdoor patios, glasses of wine clink together and effuse stories of sun-soaked Spanish grapes the hue of a matador's sports car. Chef Andy Novak appeared in a culinary demonstration hosted by Sheridan Road magazine, in which he cloaked sizzling shrimp in lemon and arbol chilies to forge a dish ideal for serving with pasta or distracting party guests from cartoon-silhouette holes in walls.

Customer Reviews

Tapas Gitana is a treasure in Northfield. serving freshly and expertly prepared Tapas. There is a good variety of vegetarian and meat as well as fish choices. We love the portability mushroom, garlic potato salad and smoked salmon small plates. The spinach and apple crepes are delightful. Don't miss delicious beef skewers and melted goat cheese in tomato basil sauce.

Service was just what you would want. Cozy and comfortable, and I enjoyed the music. Menu has a wide selection of authentic dishes. The fried artichoke hearts were my favorite! Chorizo was good as well. The roasted red pepper aioli was my favorite condiment.
