Bravas Bar de Tapas Restaurant Review

: The local Stark restaurant empire zeroes in on the tapas motherland, Spain. Obey the neon “jamon in” sign and cross the threshold of this inviting bungalow. Retro-chic décor mashes up warm colors and imagery evocative of Spain, where ’60s-psychedelic meets sleek-modern, including a minimalist glassed-in fireplace. Year-round outdoor dining includes an expansive deck bar and a festive heat-lamp-strewn, partially-covered patio. Tapas are separated into chilled and warm options: sliced-to-order jamon Ibérico, roasted red beets, tuna belly salad and Spanish white anchovies, or bacon-wrapped dates with blue cheese and Marcona almonds. Try the bocadillos, small sandwiches of duck meatballs with a spicy tomato paste and green olive purée, or traditional Serrano ham and manchego with truffle paste. House-made paella is a worthy shareable entrée. Wines are Spanish or local, by the glass, half liter and liter. Or try a Spanish-inspired cocktail. Finish with a scoop of Strauss soft-serve vanilla ice cream drizzled with tangerine oil and sea salt.
