Late night dining’s going to get a little more rewarding come Monday. That’s when the dynamic duo of Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran debut their new evening-time tapas specials at Jamonera. Every Sunday through Thursday night beginning at 10 p.m., the Spanish tapas bar will feature a selection of easily affordable, and we’re guessing equally delicious, tapas, like fried, chorizo-stuffed olives and sheep’s milk cheese with membrillo, for $2. The selection of munchie options offered will change frequently. Chef Turney is also introducing a menu of what she’s calling “Kitchen Staff Snacks.”

Inspired by the tasty concoctions she comes up with to feed her kitchen staff during long nights of work, it will feature a regularly changing range of bigger bites, like jamón and waffles, Serrano ham-studded waffles with smoked mahon ice cream, maple syrup and crispy pork belly; short rib pringa bocadillos, short rib sliders with urgelia cheese, mustard seed-horseradish crema, pickled cabbage and fries; and bocata a la plancha, three-cheese Spanish toasted sandwich with roasted piquillo peppers, grilled scallions, sautéed spinach, horseradish mustard and fries. No doubt “Marcie’s Kitchen Snack Fries,” that’s Serrano-wrapped fries with aged sheep’s milk cheese and truffled sea salt, will be a huge hit.

In addition to tapas and other snacks, Jamonera’s new late night offerings will also include some drink specials. There’s a $15 sherry tasting option, as well as $3 beers, $4 sangria and $5 wines by the glass.
