The Wall Street Journal recently visited Taperia (132 Montague Street) and published a review this week. Overall, they seem to like it:
WSJ: “In this neighborhood we are the only ones who have the back patio seats, so it’s nice to sit in the garden,” said manager Iwona Wawer.
True to the restaurant’s name, tapas are the focus, including Spanish-inspired favorites and small plates with a Latin American influence—though main courses like paella ($15-$18) are available, too.
The cocktail menu includes red and white sangria with apple, orange and pineapple ($9 a glass; $27 a pitcher), or mojitos, also available in coconut and raspberry versions ($11). For whiskey fans, there are several cocktail options, like the Taperia Old Fashioned ($8)—Maker’s Mark, Angostura bitters, orange marmalade and a cherry.
