Decided to do Tapas at Carmens we were no disappointed, a fabulous variety of flavors, stuffed mushrooms, salmon deviled eggs, chicken slider ( without the bread), and my favorite the crab crostini. The Annabella Cabernet went well with everything

The rutabaga soup was good. So was the kale salad. Potato salad was just ok. Service was friendly and food came out quickly.

Spanish inspired fresh food. It has a small menu but each meal has plenty of flavor. We enjoyed eating outside and it was worth the wait.
