And the Winner is…….La Feria Spanish Tapas Restaurant
With so many amazing restaurants in Detroit, getting to all of them has become my favorite pastime. This time, I finally got to try La Feria Spanish Tapas Restaurant. They are located at 4130 Cass, in Detroit's booming Midtown area. As the story goes, a few friends that loved this style of food won a capital funding contest to see their dream come true ... and the rest is Detroit culinary history. According to their website, the name refers to small plates that remind them of a Spanish festival. You really need to see their website or speak to the owners to get the full amazing story. My Spanish feast in Midtown started with a spinach, pear, walnut, blue cheese and roasted shallot vinaigrette salad, followed by a superior charcuterie board of imported meats and cheeses. My feast finished with juicy flat iron steak and asparagus dishes, both with red bell pepper and garlic sauce. Our Spanish feast in Midtown was also served with bread and some great oil/garlic sauce for dipping. My friend and I struggled to finish this unexpected treat. In addition to the amazing food, the service was very helpful with questions, the atmosphere was festive and they had a full bar that includes local sourced spirits and quality sangria. After my visit to La Feria Spanish Tapas restaurant, I can now understand how this food inspired the dream of its owners.
