TAPAS in the city: Small portions of fabulous treats cheer Cava Rose. The not so boring little dishes to try + taste is just what a picky fashion girl like me likes to eat. A little bit of this, more of that yummy… Why I didn’t think of this food category as my staple is beyond. On a brisk night earlier this month, I took a hike far uptown this time to check out Peque, the cutest little Tapas place with amaze food and charming deco.
Though Harlem is a bit outside of my typical navigation for food in the city, the train ride far uptown made it feel even more like an escape from the city. I was instantly smitten by the charming lights + rainbow outside at Peque restaurant, the with the vintage deco and bar. The Orange Cava Mimosa (above) with custom chargers by Harlem artist Ollomatic.
This cozy atmosphere… I didn’t know what to expect as far as decor, but look how charming this is! Discover, escape and eat well. I definitely felt the chillax vibe instantly – I can eat… And then the rosé cava was served. Happy girl.
The mini dishes range from seafood to chacuterie + vegetables, with vintage + unmatched tableware adding to the rustic atmosphere. I tried the amaze fries (of course), called Patatas Bravas with spicy homemade sauced with roasted garlic aioli on top. Then some mushrooms, and specials including a wow fish and a fennel + persimon salad.
Here are a few of my favorite things from my new Flavor of the month: Peque for tapas (and rosé cava). There’s also music on select nights including Funk + Disco on NYE!
