Seafood Tapas and Wine on Biscayne
On Mondays like this, sometimes all you want to do is get away to a tiny little Spanish seafood shack. Just
you, a senorita, a couple magnums of wine and 20 authentic tapas.
Good news: we can save you a plane ticket.
Say hello to Kantauri
, a pint-size seafood tavern inspired by the northern Spanish coast, now open
It’s a small restaurant about the size of a sailboat, and it’ll remind you of those windswept tapas bars
you helped close down during your post-college travels through Spain. If you’ve come in with a work
colleague to blow off some steam, you’ll want to belly up to the tiny six-seat bar, splitting a carafe of
sangria as you lazily watch the Barcelona-Real Madrid match above you.
But if you’ve got something a little more romantic on the docket, you’ll want to head to the blue-walled
dining area (complete with deep-sea artifacts like anchors, plastic fish and driftwood) and languorously
order up a parade of seafood cooked in the Basque style. That means a piping hot bowl of Marmitako
(tuna and potato stew), a deliciously sinister Squid in Its Black Sauce
or the cod-filled
Bacalau with Peppers
Wine-wise, they’ve got regional gems like Txakoli, a sparkling, dry white.
Might just want to point to that one.
