Renee Anderson has headed up the kitchen at Tapavino for a few years now, and her more-ish selection of tapas attracts businesspeople during the week and couples and workmates on a Friday night. With low lights, soft music and a full-length bar, you will feel like you are in the back streets of Spain. Tapavino is a perfect choice for a midweek business lunch or a leisurely meal with a loved one or close friend.
There are so many choices on the menu that it’s a good idea to take a friend so you can share a few of the bocados and tapas. The eggplant and white bean dip with breadcrumbs comes with paprika flatbread and is a great way to start. Served warm in a hollowed eggplant, the crunchy, oil-drizzled breadcrumbs give texture to the soft, smooth dip, and the house-made paprika flatbread supplies a kick of heat. The yellowfin tuna ‘cruda’ with crushed spiced almonds and sherry dressing is a well-thought-out combination of crunchy, sweet and sour.
PSST! Check out the sherry selection that’s one of the best lists in the country and treat yourself!
