Everyone knows about tapas. The savory appetizer that hails from Spain has created quite the stir in restaurants across the world, especially within the United States. Many restaurants today offer up their own take on the Spanish delicacy, but here at Vintage Wine and Bistro, we offer up an expansive selection to our customers. On top of the variety, we also have the best selection of vegetarian tapas in Farmingdale!
Tapas, when translated, means “a small portion of any food served to accompany a drink,” can be attributed to the Spanish culture of serving the food complimentary with an order of a drink. The origin of this favored dish is quite the mystery. One popular story is that, during the 13th century, King Alfonso X came down with an illness that restricted how much he could eat. When the king was severely ill, his diet consisted of relatively small meals of various ingredients to be served on a single plate. The king grew to love this concept and would order a drink to accompany each of his small meals. Ever since these humble beginnings, tapas have become part of everyday life; being served during casual get-togethers and social outings.
When it comes to vegetarian tapas in Farmingdale, however, we here at Vintage Wine Bar and Bistro offer our customers a wide variety of delicious options to choose from!
