THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Blackstone's Tapas Cafe Restaurant Review

: Nearly three-dozen tapas lead the menu---and more are available from the kitchen for the asking---so if you want to share with your dinner guests, the variety is intriguing. There’s shrimp Al Sal (shrimp baked on kosher salt), Brie, roasted red peppers, artichoke and Spanish ham, a Spanish omelet, mussels, fried calamari and even white asparagus. Tapas here also include duck (baked in a wood oven and topped with Chambord sauce), oysters, saltiato and even vegetarian options (sautéed vegetables in an olive oil and garlic sauce). Entrées include four choices of pizza plus vegetarian, seafood or chicken paella. Seafood choices include Maine lobster, lobster tails, pompano, shrimp and scallops while the Blackstone Châteaubriand, lamb or prime rib (14, 16 or 32 ounces) offer challenges to the more serious diner.
