No. 73: Tapas Sharing Platter from Johnny V
Charlie loves a good cheese. Hard, soft, mild, bold; we don't discriminate. Johnny V has an extensive cheese menu that includes cheese from around the world. But when this overwhelms, we opt for Johnny V's signature Tapas Sharing Platter.
A small cup of roasted garlic marinated olives sits atop a white plate lined with several kinds of meats and cheeses: grilled chorizo, jamon serrano, mahon, manchego, cabrales, and idiazabel cheeses.
Order with your dining companion and challenge each other to different combinations: buttery manchego with salty serrano ham wrapped around it. Creamy and crumbly cabrales piled on top of chorizo, followed by a nibble of olive. Mmm, tapas heaven!
