Tapa The World Restaurant Review

: Tapa The World has remained a staple on the midtown restaurant scene for more than two decades. With a warm and welcoming vibe, live music and extensive wine list, it is a popular choice for those seeking a fun night out. The Spanish menu features plenty of entrées, but the way to go is to follow in the Spanish tradition and share several tapas and a bottle of wine. Daily specials are always a good bet and include meat-filled empanadas and croquetas. Other tapas include fried tomato cubes with spicy tomato sauce; rock shrimp sautéed in olive oil, white wine and garlic; and Kobe beef with blue cheese and onion strings. The wine list presents selections from throughout the world, but the focus is, naturally, on Spanish wines, and dozens of varieties from all regions of Spain are available. A pitcher of sangría and a seat on the outdoor patio is a good way to pass a summer evening.
