Tapa The World
Spanish and World Cuisine.
The tradition of tapas began in the south of Spain around the turn of the century. Tavern owners placed a slice of bread over the top of the glass of wine (usually Fino Sherry) to protect it from airborne objects. Some owners started putting tidbits of food, like ham or cheese, on the bread to bring in more business.
At Tapa the World, our goal to provide the food, wine, music, and dance of Spain in an atmosphere that is warm, welcoming and fun. We encourage our guests to linger over their conversations, to invite their friends, and above all, to feel ‘bienvenido’ each time they visit.
With our cuisine, we want to show some traditional Spanish dishes as well as creations from our chef, who will use ingredients from around the world.Tapa the World
