Spanish themed food and wine at Triangle-area restaurants

leandra wrote this on September 25, 2008

Just before the El Greco to Velazquez exhibition went up at the Nasher Museum of Art in Durham there was a flurry of press about local restaurants offering Spanish themed fare throughout the run of the show.

I have no idea why I haven’t heard much about it since or why I can’t seem to find any supporting information on most of these restaurant websites.

So for those who missed it the first time, you have until November 9th to try out some of these specials! Your mileage may vary, so I would recommend calling each place before you go.

The Nasher Musuem Cafe has added bocadillos (baguette sandwiches usually with ham and cheese) and tapas to their menu.

Vita (2200 W. Main St. in Erwin Square) is offering an all-inclusive Spanish wine and tapas meal on Monday nights for $14.

George’s Garage (737 Ninth St. in Durham) is offering an all-inclusive Spanish wine and tapas meal on Tuesday nights for $16.

Parizade (2200 W. Main St. in Durham) is serving Spanish-themed wine dinners every Wednesday night for $29.

Vin Rouge (2010 Hillsborough Rd. in Durham) is serving an array of Spanish wines and tapas every Thursday evening.

Elaine’s on Franklin (454 W. Franklin St. in Chapel Hill) is offering Spanish wines and limited tapas at the bar on Thursdays.

Four Square Restaurant (2701 Chapel Hill Rd. in Durham) is featuring Spanish wine flights on Fridays during the exhibition. The wine tastings will include complimentary tapas.

    The best Spanish tapas can be found at Tasca Brava on Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh. Be sure to visit there before you come to Don Quixote Oct 9 – 12. The Ballet Don Q is being done in collaboration with the El Greco Art Exhibit at The Nasher. Don’t miss either one!
