Creativity is always flowing when we want to cook up some new tapas. Back in 2010 when we opened the term tapas here in San Diego seemed to be a somehow new concept. Well, the truth is I believe is that those who are looking for the tastiest tapas in San Diego and surrounding areas are mostly those who have been to Spain or those who come to visit San Diego for business or as a vacation spot. I remember a night out with Joanna at Charlottesville Historic Downtown Mall before we went to see a Cirque Du Soleil show. We stopped at a Spanish tapas place. Back then I was already thinking about opening a restaurant in the future so I was paying attention to every detail, from food we ordered to the decor and feeling of the place. Creativity was all around us.
The picture above is from a tapa inspired dish I made back in 2013 when Instagram was somehow new and very few restaurants were in the game of showing their fans their creations on a daily basis. Gary Vee wasn't even talking about the power of social media and I was working on influencing your going outs before the term "influencer" went main stream. But that's another conversation.
