In Spain, diners – at least the local diners- do not have dinner at a tapas bar. They are public gathering places to stop after work, before dinner, for a glass of wine and a snack. The theme and setting at 52 Main in Millerton seem to mimic that tradition – a place to stop on the way home to meet some friends for a bite and a glass or two of wine.
Earlier this year we got to cross one item off our travel “bucket list”, a trip across northern Spain sampling the local fare, with a focus on tapas. We started in Barcelona, before travelling through the Rioja region. We grazed through San Sebastian, a city with enough Michelin stars to be named a constellation, before traveling west to Galicia to the historic city of Santiago de Compostela. Color me happy!
Panzur has been on our “wish list” of new restaurants for quite some time. Chef Rei Peraza, who owns the restaurant with his wife Kim, have been the talk of the town since they opened two years ago.
If you actually needed another reason to visit the New Paltz Water Street Market, you now have one. The market is located on the western edge of the village of New Paltz, overlooking the Wallkill River Bridge.
Elephant bills itself as a casual tapas ~ wine bar. Co-owners Maya Karrol and Rich Reeve opened the popular uptown Kingston eatery five year ago to rave reviews and quickly built a loyal following. An overnight sensation, right? Not exactly. There is much more to the story.
