The Reawakening

Some counties are in Phase 2, some are in a modified Phase 1. Either way, we are able to begin enjoying (modified) restaurant and hotel experiences. Keep in mind that social distancing will ensure that space will be more limited and making reservations will be important. Enjoy responsibly (that used to be said about alcohol, now it's about life in general).

Castilla Spanish Restaurant & Tapas Bar

One of the thrills of travel is experiencing different food cultures. Although many of our trips have been canceled, we can still savor new or beloved dishes.

Each week she creates a new menu of tapas, paella, and a bottle of wine or pitcher of sangria. It's what she would do in Spain during normal times: tapas bars for one or two bites and a drink, then to a restaurant for paella and sangria. Make it your new tradition!

Happy Anniversary! Next - Father's Day! If dad loves to create in the kitchen, an oil and balsamic sample pack with a side of truffle oil, salami, salts, or mustards would make his day. For families who want to thrill dad, marinate his favorite protein in a flavored balsamic and watch his eyes roll in delight.
