Menu detail

Small Plate
Assorted artisan cheese, Spanish chorizo & charcuterie, olives stuffed with anchovies, etc.
Pimientos del Padron
First Course
These sometimes spicy peppers are in season and absolutely a delicious accompaniment to an excellent aperitif while we cook. I also like to serve Spanish olives stuffed with anchovies and chorizo from Spain!
Spanish Seafood Paella
First Course
An authentic paella using real "bomba" rice, house-made lobster stock (a real game changer), onion, pimenton, saffron, gulf prawns, clams, mussels, English peas and lemon. I like to serve with a bit of house-made garlic aioli for some kick.
Salad of little gems, radicchio, beets & goat cheese
First Course
This is a Spanish classic. Super fresh greens tossed with coarse salt, Sherry vinegar and young olive oil and paired with roasted beets & Laura Chenel goat cheese.
La Quesada
First Course
This extraordinary dessert hails from the Basque country from the town of Santander. I serve this cheese cake meets flan (but light!) with local berries. I will even share with you the recipe. It's incredible!
