Sailing to Canton

 

continued

The wine list carries well-priced New and Old World Spanish and Spanish-style wines, about a dozen of which are available by the glass for $6-$9. On Wednesday, bottles are half price, so four of us split a Martín Códax Ergo Tempranillo from Rioja, and, although slightly tannic for my taste, it was a terrific bargain at $16.50. If you are looking for whites, the peachy Brandal Albariño was nicely balanced. They make their own sangria here.

Service was exceptionally pleasant if not particularly speedy. One difficult aspect of visiting here, particularly for people coming from Ann Arbor, is that Tasca de Plata does not post its hours on its menu, website, or even the door, and does not have voicemail or an answering machine to give the caller a clue as to whether anyone is going to be there (the hours listed below were given me over the phone, so you might want to call before you set out). On both of my visits, the dining room was nearly empty, which makes me worry about its longevity.
