Tapas, like books, cars, and husbands, are designed to be shared with those closest to you. Indulge in the best of sort of sharing with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of tapas and wine at The Cazbah, with locations in Greenville and Greer.
Like snowflakes or air-horn melodies, the menus at The Cazbah's Greenville and Greer locations differ in subtle ways, though both are packed with an assortment of shareable tapas selections. Dual-location offerings include fancy asparagus, cloaked in tempura and dipped in spicy Asian mayonnaise ($4.95–$5.65), and the Southern fried sushi roll, a deep-fried remix of an Asian classic with crab, tuna, and spicy mayo ($8.45). After a savory selection, sweet teeth join forces to crush the original chocolate empanada, Belgian chocolate wrapped in puff pastry and served with banana slices and brown-sugar cream sauce ($5.95). Imbibables include the New Zealand simi sauvignon blanc ($6.50/glass) on the Greer wine list and the Spanish tempranillo ($7.75/glass) on the Greenville wine list, representing varying climates, grape varieties, and soil allegiances.
The vibrant, art-punctuated décor at the Greenville location contrasts the newer Greer establishment, which is filled with exposed brick and sleek furniture and topped with a rooftop patio. Reservations, like wearing chain mail while wrestling a bear, are highly recommended but not required.
The Cazbah serves up traditional American and Asian-inspired small plates along with a carefully curated list of wines. Housed in a former feed-and-seed store, it features a chic industrial design with tin ceilings, exposed brick walls, and a rooftop bar that allows guests to enjoy dinner with a view. The Cazbah furnishes those dinners with a menu of between 30 and 35 rotating tapas, including grilled seafood, veggie dips, and comfort-food staples. The wine list is equally varied, making it easy to find pairings for all types of cuisine.
