Taberna Tapas

meathead | Apr 12, 2003 11:26 AM

Thank you for all the input on Tapas. I will try Dali, Tapeo and Tasca but opted for Taberna because of proximity to a theater.

I enjoyed the food immensely. Had a wonderful Spanish reserva wine and delicious dessert wine.

Pinchos - Cabrales whipped with hard cider - pungent and tasty.
Serrano - good
Sausage with garlic mayo was delicious.
The white asparagus never made it to the table unfortunately.

It was quickly forgotten because the duck special a huge duck breast cooked to perfection with a carmelized onion and wild cherry chutney/compote arrived immediately. It was superb. Sizzling garlic shrimp was an excellent staple dish.

A sherry chocolate pudding with a dessert wine - were the perfect finish.

Service was fine - I had one reservation - almost all the food is served at once. I would have preferred to have a little spacing to keep food warm and to savor each dish. Perhaps this is customary service for tapas in Boston? In the future I might just order, reorder, and reorder as one would in Spain.

Thanks again for all the suggestions. It seems that Boston has an lively Tapas scene and I look forward to trying more. I ate tapas in Waltham recently with a large group and we closed the place and enjoyed a wide variety of tapas. I passed on CuchiCuchi because frankly I felt like eating more traditional Spanish fare but will try it in the near future.
