We had been to Cafe Azafran in Lewes, Delaware many times for tapas year round and Thursday paella nights during the summer. The Lewes restaurant does not serve dinner in the winter season anymore but lucky us, the one in Rehoboth does. We went with another couple and had a selection of tapas. But first came the hot out of the oven, crusty bread with a really nice dish of olive oil for dipping and a large portion of mixed olives. Here is what we tried: The calamari with the aoli was crispy, non greasy and well seasoned. The La Mancha plate with manchego cheese, thinly sliced chorizo and serrano ham along with romesco sauce was served nicely and an extremely generous portion and the baked goat cheese gratin was lovely but both would be better served by the wonderful bread than the ho-hum pita they both came with. We all stuck to the bread and left the pita. The last tapa we enjoyed was the grilled artichoke pesto bruschetta. We all agreed it was our favorite. The baby artichoke was grilled to perfection as was the bread. The pesto enhanced the flavors perfectly. We were also impressed with the chef's willingness to divide the seafood tarragona (bouillabaisse) big plate into two servings and a tasty dish it was. We are happy to know that in addition to serving paella on Thursday in Lewes, paella will be served in Wednesday in Rehoboth. Can't wait for summer!
