During the last year of Abrams’ Tower’s existence in Wrocław, Poland, I added a new concept to the menu that was inspired by the several years that I spent in Barcelona during the early to mid-1990s. I adopted the Spanish practice of eating bar food called “tapas.” Whereas the typical menu of tapas in Spain varies, depending on the particular region of the country, the idea struck me that there are various types of bar food throughout the world – so why not offer an eclectic variety of “global tapas?” As can be seen by the examples below, some of what we served was culturally based, such as Mexican taquitos, Japanese tempura or traditional Spanish tapas – but a number of dishes were our very own fusion concoctions.
