Tabella in Amherst, MA = wonderful!

I enjoyed a fantastic meal at Tabella in Amherst last week.
It's run by the folks who used to own A Bottle of Bread which
sadly burned down in Shelburne Falls a while ago.

It's not a traditional Spanish tapas restaurant, but tapas in that
it only serves small plates. Standouts were the free range chicken
wings served with a creamy lemongrass dipping sauce (the wings
were SO much larger and juicier than their non-organically raised
counterparts), seared duck with fig and port sauce, balsamic braised brussels
sprouts with chestnuts, and a curried cod dish served with kale. All the
dishes were wonderful. We also had fried olives stuffed w. almonds and feta, though we all agreed they could have used more feta.

Tabella is located at 28 Amity Street, right next to the newly renovated
Amherst Cinema and Amherst Coffee. We went to Amherst Coffee afterwards for
Hot Toddies and whiskeys. They have a very selective array of whiskey, wine, port, etc.
Or you can always get a nice espresso.
