Bar Gitano is a popular Tapas Bar in the Condado Area just across from the San Juan Marriott Hotel; its exposed brick and wood work and hanging Spanish art pieces are reminiscent of local bars in Spain. It is home to live Flamenco Shows Thursday and Sunday at 8:30 pm and regularly shows ‘Live’ soccer games, especially La Liga games from Spain.
Recently, Paco De Juan owner of Bar Gitano along with Executive Chef Carlos Vazquez have introduced a new menu that includes new and exciting tapas dishes, salads and desserts.
I have not had chance to check out the new menu, but based on the press release I received, I am hoping to try a few dishes soon.
New items that Bar Gitano would love you to try include:
Arugula salad w / roasted beets, goat cheese, fig jam Pistachio
Medjool dates stuffed with valdeon cheese wrapped in bacon (Valdeon Cheese is a Spanish blue cheese from León)
Meatballs braised in sherry with roasted tomatoes and shallots
Brandada de bacalao with lime aioli (Cod Croquettes)
Lamb skewers with mint salsa verde & fennel salad
Coconut Cake Gitano with guava mousse & toasted merengue de Madrid
In addition to the new dishes, Bar Gitano will be introducing a newly crafted cocktail menu and beginning in June, Brunch will be served on Saturdays & Sundays from 10am.
