Spanish Tapas Night on the Patio for 2!

In-PersonEast Lakeview, Chicago


Small (4-10 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 Camillas Churros 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. See you then!

Fresh shelling peas and pole beans, with smoked and smoked eggplant 'jamon,' cooked in a Fino Pedro Ximinez sherry. Topped with fresh herbs, and shaved almond manchego.
Patatas Bravas
Small Plate
The classic tapas dish! Fried potatoes with sweet pimenton, and fermented thai chiles to give the sauce real depth and heat.
Escalivada with Salsa Verde
Small Plate
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.

Medjool Dates filled with our 2-month Aged Tofu Misozuke (think aged cheese), wrapped in Smoked Eggplant Bacon, baked to perfection, and served with Pomegranate Molasses
Bocadillos (little sandwiches)
Small Plate
We'll be filling miniature bocadillos with yuba cooked in a rich sauce of fermented peppers, garlic and paprika. Topped off with garlic aioli and watercress.
Spicy Catalan Chowder
Seared king trumpet and oyster mushrooms, served in a tomato, saffron, and Mendocino sea vegetable broth. Served with picada, and a crust of bread, topped with saffron rouille.
Camillas Churros
Camilla who works at the cafe has an excellent hand with pastries, and suggested she make churros as a sweet ending for this dinner, complete with a Dark Matter Espresso Mocha Whip, as well as a Roasted Strawberry-Cherry Pepper Compote
