A December dinner at the Harvest Vine

I've dined at The Harvest Vine a lot of times but never during the holidays. Their decorations and lights were subtle and classy. We brought some family members who'd never eaten there so they could experience the authentic Spanish cuisine. The dinner was amazing and the flavors were on point. Every time I eat there I always start daydreaming about visiting Spain. The dishes are served family style and are tapas from the Basque region. We started with a bottle of Rose Cava which was bubbly and refreshing. Then we ordered a bunch of dishes so our family could try them. I'd had all of the dishes before and already blogged about most of them, but I couldn't help photographing each plate anyway. The servings are small, so some dishes I just had a bite or two, but they were amazing bites. 

The upstairs dining area at The Harvest Vine is a busy and happy place to dine. You can watch them prepare the tapas in the open kitchen. 

Their holiday decorations were unique and fun, especially the mini copper pans. The special Tartas De Musico's, delicious tarts full of nuts, wait to be purchased for the holidays. 

The banister's leading to the downstairs dining area looked very festive. 

A bottle of bubbly is never a bad way to start a meal out. 

The Seared Goat Cheese was oh so good. 

The Beef Tongue was especially good. It was thinly sliced and a little salty. The peppers paired well with the meat and a little bit of aioli lightened things up. 

Go big or go home. We went with the cheese plate featuring four cheeses and their accompaniments since our family could try a little of everything.  

The Tortilla Espanola is a classic Spanish dish everyone should try. If potatoes and leeks are your thing, you'll love this hearty and savory dish. 

Wintertime is perfect for roasted veggies like their Roasted Cauliflower with Salsa Verde.   

The Sea Bass is a nice and light dish and it is served with peppers. 

One of my favorite dishes is the Venison. The meat is so tender and juicy. There are some cooked mushrooms that pair so well with the dish, too. 

And my other favorite is the Foie Gras. Our niece tried it for the first time and didn't know what to expect. The dish is very soft and almost melts in your mouth. She enjoyed getting to try some unique food during our meal. 

I had a glass of some Spanish red wine, a Garnacha. It was deep bodied and fruity. It paired well with our meat dishes. 

Then for dessert we shared three so everyone could have some. We had the Goat Milk Cheesecake with Red Wine Cherries, a trio of ice creams, and the Flan.
