Because there are so many good places for small plates in our city…
Toro: We love Toro for Spanish-style tapas and a scrupulous Sunday brunch. Fireplace in the winter, patios for the summer, Toro knows how to adapt and has been one of Boston’s best for shared plates for years. They have industry night the first Thursday of every month, which is a solid deal for any servers out there looking to sample some of the South End’s yummiest dishes.
Tapeo: Newbury Street’s answer to small plates. With a menu that rotates seasonally every eight weeks, we love stopping by for the latest concoctions from the kitchen. The bar offers a similarly fun blend of old and new, including a great selection of Spanish wines. That’s only fitting, right?
Estragon: Also nestled in the South End, Estragon features Spain’s best in a touted authentic atmosphere with gold 30s decor. The cozy bar features a sangria bubbler, and the waitstaff is thoughtful and warm. The prices keep your options open, with a little something for everyone, regardless of their budget. And, particularly for the veg heads among us, Estragon is the city’s best bet for veggie options. Period.
