The 5 Best Tapas/Small Plates Restaurants in St. Louis
How do you say mmmmm in Spanish? | Sarah Rusnak
Modesto Tapas Bar & Restaurant
(5257 Shaw Avenue; 314-772-8272)
Modesto is a truly Spanish tapas restaurant -- even the wines and cheeses are imported from Spain. When we say small plates, we mean small: happy-hour plates start at 25 cents for a bite full of flavor. Pop pinxtos like a stuffed Gordal olive with blue cheese and almond or a deviled egg with black olive and piquillo. There is lots to mix and match, with gluten-free and vegetarian options to boot.
