Two close friends of mine, and I, got together for dinner Wednesday night. I met both of them while singing in a chorus in Omaha. Laura still sings with them, Sheri left just before I did. We try to meet up at least once a month for dinners and drinks.
Try is the key word there. :-)
On Wednesday afternoon, as usual, we were emailing each other still trying to decide where to go. I'd heard great things about a place near where I live, so I threw it out there as a suggestion.
Turns out it's one of Laura's favorite places to go!! So that's what we decided on finally.
Espana, Tapas and Sangria. Yummo!
(pardon the blury and fuzzy pis...was trying to be "cool" and take the picture without being noticed)
Laura and I arrived first, and sat down to pick from the 40 million different tapas they serve.
We also were"forced" (ahem) to listen to the extremely sexy Spanish waiter explain the specials and the paella offered.
Thick accent, long dark curly locks, deep brown eyes......Anyway....
(When he brought our ticket out and asked if there was anything else he could get us, Sheri said, "Sure, whatcha got?" followed by "a neck massage would be great.")
We settled on 8 different selections. They were, in no particular order...Tres Quesos (cheese plate, figs, and this sweet jelly stuff), Patatas Brava (spicey HOT fried potatoes), tomato bread with ham and prosciutto, Chicken Empanadas, Carpaccio Bistec (yep, that's right, I ate raw meat), stuffed cannelloni, and a stuffed pork loin.
And, of course, flan for dessert.
There wasn't one thing served that wasn't absolutely delicious!!!!!! I can't wait to take Mot there!
They have flamenco performers, musicians and such on the weekends....the atmosphere is awesome!!!! The building is very long and narrow, and brings a very broad clientele.
Even though it's not the cheapest place to go, I think it's going to turn into one of our favorite places to eat. You definitely get what you pay for!!!! :-)
