Not one to miss an opportunity to try a new restaurant, the staff of edibleWOW visited La Feria on Cass in Detroit. These winners of the 2012 Hatch award opened La Feria as a traditional Spanish tapas restaurant filling a much needed gap for this style of eating. Lunch was busy, yet still with the vibe of a laid-back Spanish tapas café. The idea is to order many plates to share, take your time, and enjoy the conversation, which is just what we did. The perfectly prepared classic Spanish omelet, to almond stuffed dates wrapped in bacon (cause everything is better wrapped in bacon) to freshly prepared seafood (mussels and grilled sardines) are just a few items from the generously sized lunch menu. And yes, they serve the sardines whole and they have bones much to the chagrin of my fellow staff members. There is no better way to eat out sharing food, drink and dialog while losing track of time.
