I’ve always been a snacker. I love getting little tastes of all sorts of different foods (sometimes from other people’s plates, which the teacher man frowns upon) whenever I can. The perfect solution to my snack habit? Tapas!
On my first night in New York City with my BGF Carolyn, we rounded up a group of friends (including my food editor girlfriend Tabitha) and headed to Boqueria in Soho to share Spanish-style tapas and wine. The restaurant was cozy yet trendy and filled with beautiful people eating beautiful food.
Our group of six ordered off the tapas and artisan cheese/meats menus to fill our table with a variety of sweet and savory dishes. I was a little too busy chowing the food to take note of everything I ate off the meat and cheese board (hey, we all ordered something for the table, and I just trusted that Boqueria wouldn’t let me down), but surely some sweet person with a better memory than mine will be able to help me define everything in the following picture (help, Tabitha!).
We washed our tapas down with tasty red and rosé wines. Though we skipped out on a formal “dessert,” Tabitha and I saved a little room for Dátiles con Beicon — dates stuffed with almonds and Valdeón, wrapped in bacon. For some reason, the dates didn’t stay around long enough for a picture…
