Tinto Restaurant Review

: Tinto is the brainchild of Jose Garces of “Iron Chef” fame. The menu is simple with an array of small plates inspired by similar dishes served in the pintxo bars in Europe’s Basque region, paired with ciders, sangrías and wine. There are shareable selections, both hot and cold, with plenty of cheese and cured meats to savor. A chef’s tasting menu with optional wine pairings will certainly appeal to desert gourmands. More substantial offerings include pork belly and octopus. Albondigas is made with lamb instead of the more traditional beef, and features sherry cream and black truffle. Home base for Tinto, which offers indoor and outdoor seating, is perpetually hip The Saguaro Palm Springs.
