Tapas, like books, cars, and husbands, are designed to be shared with those closest to you. Indulge in the best of Spanish-style sharing with today’s Groupon to The Point in Richmond. Choose between the following options:
- For $27, you get a tapas dinner for two including six tapas dishes (up to a $6 value each) and a pitcher of sangria (a $19.95 value; up to a $55.95 total value).
- For $34, you get a pasta dinner for two including two small house salads (an $8 value each), two pasta entrees (up to a $17 value each), and two glasses of wine (up to a $9 value each; up to a $68 total value).
The Point sources fresh, local ingredients to craft a menu of tapas and pastas and seats diners on a patio tickled by fresh air from neighbouring Garry Point Park. The tapas dinner for two lets couples, friends, or reconciled comedy duos choose 6 of the 14 small-plate selections, such as baby dungeness-crab cakes, yam fries served with garlic aioli, and chorizo sliders topped with caramelized onions, Okanagan goat cheese, and a sweet balsamic reduction. A pitcher of sangria adds to the evening's Spanish sheen, cleansing palates between bites and debates about whether the running of the bulls is really a run or more of a power walk.
The pasta dinner for two starts with small house salads, combining greens, sun-dried and fresh fruit, Okanagan goat cheese, honey-roasted pecans, and blueberry vinaigrette mixed while the chef jumps on a trampoline. For the main course, three pasta options span lobster ravioli tossed in a saffron cream sauce, the crab-and-spinach pasta shells poached in a vodka-tomato cream sauce, or the butternut squash and camembert medallions finished in honey-roasted pecans. A 5-ounce glass of wine for each diner lubricates chatter joints, especially appealing if dining with the Tin Man.
