Tapeo 29 (www.tapeo29.com) When you round the corner of Stanton onto Clinton you are faced with a giant wooden door. When you step inside wooden room, white candles scatter a soft glow across the restaurant, and the two side windows are open to let in a gentle breeze. The space is small, and intimate with fun music blaring in the background. There is a nice selection of Spanish wines, which our waitress was happy to help us with and let us sample a few before we selected a bottle (sometimes we can be picky). We started with our usual cheese plate, not a huge selection but the cheeses they had we loved! The tapas dishes are simple, light but very flavorful- classic pairings of the shrimp with garlic and olive oil (phenomenal), Pan con Tomate (was delicious with the cheese!), and albondigas con salsa de tomate (yes that’s right, we love meatballs). We polished off our meal with the Tarta de chocolate… a very rich chocolate cake with warm chocolate sauce topping… absolutely heavenly. Overall Tapeo 29 was great, a perfect date place or fun night out with the girls, from the cool dark atmosphere to the wines, cheeses, tapas and the dessert. Also--- Monday nights are themed- each Monday there is a drink special—this Monday margaritas!!!
