Spanish Tapas Night

In-PersonEast Lakeview, Chicago


Large (15-20 Guests)
Vegan, Vegetarian
I really enjoy Spanish food, and tapas in general, but it's often a big challenge to find many vegan options. We'll be serving most of this menu family style, with the exception of the Spicy Catalan Chowder and the Almond Cake for dessert! Feel free to bring a nice cava, albarino, rioja, or sherry to drink with your meal, and we'll keep the food coming! This menu features a lot of bold and fresh flavors, finished off with a sumptuous almond cake with whipped sherry cream. See you then!

Patatas Bravas

The classic tapas dish! Fried potatoes with sweet pimenton, and fermented thai chiles to give the sauce real depth and heat.

We'll be tossing eggplants, peppers, and sweet red onion into embers, to let them smoke and cook, then chilling and slicing them to make a chilled vegetable salad. We'll be dressing it in a bright acidic salsa verde, and garnished with fried capers.
