Philadelphia import Amada has just opened its doors in Battery Park City with Chef Jose Garces at the helm, bringing his signature tapas concept to the ever-evolving Brookfield Place community. The James Beard award-winning chef and his fleet of talented experts, both in the kitchen and behind the bar, channel the spirit of Spanish tradition with their own twist of modern gastronomy -- a welcome addition to Brookfield Place’s already robust dining portfolio, perfect for the adventurous palate. Go for the chef’s tasting with wine pairing, or go the old fashioned route and choose from an extensive list of impeccable offerings, from traditional tapas like albóndigas and bacon-wrapped dates to diver scallops a la planxa and a roasted suckling pig for the table. There’s no going wrong, especially where design-your-own gin and tonics are involved. Contact your Attaché for reservations and more menu picks.
