Tonight, we've curated a blend of Mediterranean and Spanish themed small plates for the perfect al fresco dining experience.

It's tapas time.

Instead of a whole composed meal tonight, let's all share small plates (only without the annoying birthday party that typically goes with it). We've selected 10 of our favorite tapas recipes, all you need to do is pick a few, provide copious amounts of wine and maybe play a little Django Reinhardt. Yeah, that sounds like a classy little tapas shindig to us.

      London: Around The World In Four Plates

      Caravan in Clerkewell helped my hangover. Merci!

      Caravan London

      Caravan is a coffee roastery, restaurant and cocktail bar in the busting Exmouth Market in London’s Clerkewell neighborhood. Their mending, hair-of-the-dog brunch sorta of knocked my socks off—and not because of an engergizing cocktail made with ginger-infused Sipsmith gin. But that didn’t really hurt.

      This simple, yet very refined dish speaks to Chef Wolfgang Puck's craft: find the best ingredients you can, make everything from scratch and don't overcomplicate. These potatoes with caviar and creme fraiche are a frequent guest at the Oscars, wrapped in gold foil for extra panache. We'd gladly take one of these osetra-topped beauties over a useless statuette anyday.

      No one can deny a slider. You can put anything in a shiny little brioche bun and people will be impressed and in awe of your talents (trust me). Luckily, this version also happens to be delicious. Braising the pork takes time, but all the components can be made a day ahead and the time will be well-spent.
