First Annual Spain’s Tapas Trail in New York City

The Trade Commission of Spain announced today that the first annual Spain’s Tapas Trail will take place from October 1st, 2013 to October 8th, 2013 throughout New York City at participating restaurants. Spain’s Tapas Trail will be a culinary odyssey of distinctive Spanish food, wines and beers at the top Spanish restaurants in Manhattan. This city wide extravaganza is a continuation of celebrating Spanish culture that will kick off at Spain’s Great Match on September 24th, 2013.
During the first week of October, the foodies of New York City will have the opportunity to taste the best of Spain by following the trail of the 13 participating restaurants. Restaurants include Alcalá, Andanada, Barraca Restaurant, Casa Mono y Bar Jamón, Salinas Restaurant & Tapas Bar, Socarrat Chelsea, Socarrat Nolita, Socarrat East, La Churreria, La Nacional, Solera, Tertulia and Txikito. Each participating restaurant will create a unique tapa and drink pairing special for ten dollars ($10).
Each limited-edition tapa will incorporate jamón ibérico (cured Iberian ham), complimented by a tasting of Spanish olives and a palate-tantalizing Rioja red wine, Rueda white wine or Estrella Damm beer. “This tapa and drink pairing is something not to be missed. We are so excited for Spain’s Tapas Trail and look forward to many more in years to come,” said Jeffrey Shaw, Director of Foods from Spain.
This Tapas Trail special will only be available at each restaurant from October 1st, 2013 – October 8th, 2013 or while supplies last. Details are subject to change; for updated information please visit www.greatmatch.org/tapastrail.
