Tapas Sundays at Ciudad

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Recently we checked out downtown's noted Ciudad, and had a generally enjoyable time. Bottom line: good food, great drinks, and uneven service at times. Despite the drawbacks of our experience, this bright and colorful spot draws raves from devotees, most of whom give the enthusiastic thumbs up to their cocktail hour offerings. In a move that seems on par with many local restaurants' initiation of specialty nights to fill tables (Jar's Mozzarella Mondays, for example) the folks at Ciudad are offering a Tapas Sunday special, featuring an all tapas menu and Spanish wines by the glass, starting this weekend. Some of the savory items on the menu include Cabrales Blue Cheese Fritters with Sherry Soaked Bing Cherries, Piquillo Peppers Stuffed with Avocado Goat Cheese, Seeded Lamb Chops with Algerian Eggplant Jam and Preserved Lemons, and Lobster Salad with Shaved Cucumber, Melon, and Sherry-Mint Aioli. Some of the sweet dessert tapas are Hazelnut Meringues, Espresso Dusted Churros, and Chocolate Barcelona Cake. Little dishes can have big taste; even typing these words is making us hungry!
