Plancha Delights

If you want to do dinner right, head to Plancha Tapas and Wine Bar on Franklin Ave in Garden City. It had been too long since I was able to get back there so I more than made up for it on a recent visit.

Josh, the owner, will be more than happy to guide you in your food and wine choices. My dinner date and I actually sat down and just asked him to recommend away. And he did. We started with this:

Is your mouth watering yet? Josh fine-tuned the board a bit and switched a few items around from what was on the menu. Love this about Plancha- they really want you to enjoy the experience and tailor to your preferences.

If you like olives, the olives at Plancha are amazing. We. Loved. Them. We also splurged with the cebada {yum}, shishito peppers {delish but a lot of peppers for just two people}, scallops {excellent}. The eggplant puree with root vegetables and almonds under the scallops was so delicious- I think it deserves a plate of its very own! In short, the meal was fantastic.

Josh paired all of this with a Spanish red that went perfectly- didn’t overwhelm the food at all but complemented it just right. My only regret was not having a second stomach to enjoy some of the other items on the menu.

There’s nothing else like Plancha in GC. Have you been yet?
