Tapas Festival Special at NY’s Finest Spanish Restaurant: El Porrón

Spanish Food is IN & No Restaurant in NY Does it Better Than El Porrón

Award-winning website, Punchin-dot-com, features the Walman Report and reviews of restaurants, travel, wine and theater. The Tomato Fight has been a well-known Spanish tradition for as long as we can remember, and while we can’t exactly be throwing tomatoes at each other on the streets of New York, there’s no reason we can’t still partake in the celebration.  El Porrón on the Upper East Side has designed a Tapas Festival Special to honor this annual food fight.

One Night Only, August 25th, while Spaniards are busy getting dirty, you can enjoy a hearty spread of 6 of chef Gonzalo “Mr. G” Bermeo’s classic and signature tapas with 2 glasses of any wine of your choice, like a vibrant Rioja or a sparkling Txakolina. 

This special was designed for two, so bring a partner along to share in the eating.  The offerings include Classic hearty golden ‘omelet’ of eggs, potatoes, onions and Spanish ham. Fresh tiger shrimp sautéed in garlic and white wine sauce. Roasted red peppers & asparagus. Littleneck clams baked in a mildly spicy tomato & herb sauce and Grilled chicken breast with eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, tomato & onion.
