One of my favorite things to do in Spain is to go see flamenco dancing. I love the fashion, the grace, the emotion and the passion, and Pepin right here in Old Town Scottsdale offers up great flamenco performances that brought me right back to Madrid when I saw them last weekend.
Every Friday and Saturday night for no cover charge, the Spanish restaurant hosts talented dancers strutting their stuff right in front of your table. They wear the long swaying dresses and are deft at the dance moves, and it’s really delightful to see them get down. The food is great, too, and I think it’s a very classy spot, especially for a date.
The spot serves up really good Spanish food and sangria–get a pitcher to share with friends for $32, which yields eight glasses.
We tried a ton of stuff, including toast topped with goat cheese and red peppers,
and if you’re into paella, there’s a wide variety.
There are lots of other options as well, including pastas and seafood.
I’d go back for the flamenco alone, though–muy bonito!
