Spanish tapas: Amada.
Part of a large group dinner but we had a good sampling of the menu including some items made just for our group.
As expected, this is a place for small plates so come prepared to sample as many as you can….all are excellent so I don’t think there is anything bad to be had here.
Highlights included the jamon croquet….the romesco sauce is to die for…sweetness with a hint of paprika and crunchiness with the add of ground almonds; the cauliflower with pickled mustard seeds, goat cheese and raisins…interesting blend of flavors with a tart sweetness and the grilled shrimp….salty and smoky at the same time. Lastly, the mushroom risotto was rich and creamy and the costillas de ternera….flatbread with short ribs, horseradish, parmesan and bacon …was one of my favorites. My least favorite was the grilled chicken skewers which seemed oddly bland and on the dry side.
Service was very good.
