Small, Basque-country-inspired plates near Rittenhouse Square
Chef Jose Garces brings the extraordinary tastes of the Basque country – the coastal and mountainous region that blurs the lines of demarcation between Spain and France – to the Rittenhouse neighborhood.
Featuring an intimate atmosphere reminiscent of a rustic wine cellar and an incredible wine list of more than 100 Spanish and French varieties, Tinto is certainly a space to relax over a glass of vino paired with a plate of charcuterie or cheese.
The full menu features a solid selection of tapas, including both meat, seafood and vegetable-based options. Think tuna tartare paired with chorizo aïoli, albóndigas (spiced meatballs) topped with a poached egg and paella rice seasoned with butternut squash, kale and other seasonal treats.
The space features handcrafted wooden grids, which house thousands of wine bottles that encircle the room. A 22-foot bar constructed with reclaimed orange-stained lumber sits at the center, surrounded by high-top tables and black and white Spanish tiling. Floor to ceiling bi-fold glass doors open onto 20th Street, where you can enjoy alfresco dining, weather permitting.
Downstairs, Tinto offers a lounge atmosphere with cozy dark brown and mustard colored vinyl upholstered sofas and black laminate tables.
