Alicante Restaurant Review

: Alicante, formerly known as Zini Café, only underwent a name change to alleviate any confusion with Zin American Bistro, which shares the same owner and avenue. The emphasis is still on affordably priced Spanish tapas, along with a handful of pasta dishes. We enjoy stopping in for the small plates and charcuterie, which lend themselves nicely to a leisurely evening with full glasses of wine and pleasant conversation. Whether you go for the grilled calamari stuffed with chorizo and garnished with capers and fried parsley, or the grilled artichoke heart with asparagus, Serrano ham, manchego and a fried egg, your palate will remember the experience.
