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: for $25, you get $50 worth of Spanish cuisine and drinks at Vizcaya Restaurante & Tapas Bar.
Vizcaya Restaurante & Tapas Bar's owner and chef Felix Piedra presents authentic Iberian-inspired cuisine that embodies years of research and refinement. Pals can pile around a table to sample a huge menu of hot and cold tapas, from a wide selection of ceviches ($9–$10) to the rollito de berenjena, caramelized eggplant with imported spanish cheese and pepper sauce ($6). Or, buck society's unreasonable insistence on sharing for an evening and commandeer a dinner entree of seafood paella, studded with jumbo shrimp, scallops, mussels, and other marine morsels ($24). The lunch menu tends to lighter appetites with green salads ($10) and sandwiches that tuck decadent meats and cheeses into a manageable handheld package ($10). Brightly colored walls, paintings, and large windows form Vizcaya's festive interior, which acts as an ideal backdrop for sipping house-made sangria, reconnecting with old friends, and engaging in respectful debates about the right way to groom a Wookiee.
Vizcaya Restaurante and Tapas Bar
Inspired by the unique tastes and recipes of the Iberian peninsula, Chef Felix Piedra crafts a menu of inventive tapas and entrees to complement the spicy atmosphere of his Vizcaya Restaurante and Tapas Bar. There, he cooks up hot and cold tapas—dishes designed for sharing—featuring exotic seafood and béchamel sauce and infuses entrees such as Black Angus filet and paella with Spanish touches such as piquillo peppers.
Piedra's sommeliers curate an extensive wine list that includes varietals from Spain, Argentina, and Australia, though patrons sometimes eschew international bottles for glasses of sangria, made in-house from caramelized fruit and muscatel and Rioja wines. Occasionally during dinner hours, flamenco dancers perform their passionate dance moves on the restaurant's stage, spinning majestically to traditional Spanish music while stomping out the text of Don Quixote in Morse code.
