Bluewater Says “Olé” for Taste of Spain Celebration in September

Seafood paella, tapas and wines of Spain are the focus of Sept. 10 feast.

Once again, Bluewater’s Second Tuesday Tasting takes on a southern European flair in September as Bluewater Boathouse Seafood Grill celebrates the flavors, fun and culinary passion of Spain for a month-long menu promotion.

“A Taste of Spain” pairs a special Bluewater Grill seafood restaurant version of Paella, made with an exclusive blend of rice, saffron, seafood and shellfish, with a seafood tapas starter and wines from the country’s famous grape-growing regions. One of the most popular monthly tasting events of the year, the Sept. 10 tasting is expected to sell-out in advance.

Bluewater Taste of SpainOffered on the second Tuesday of every month, Bluewater’s tasting series allows seafood and wine aficionados to marry their two loves in a spirited setting featuring the latest seasonal seafood and shellfish varieties paired with hand-selected wines (or specialty draft beers or cocktails) and roving commentary by the restaurant’s resident seafood experts. As a companion to the event, a special, limited-time menu offering allows customers to sample the tasting event throughout the month. The result has become a popular monthly diversion for Bluewater’s large fan base.

Paella originated in the fields of Valencia in eastern Spain but is now a favorite of every region of the country. While Spanish varieties typically combine saffron with pork, eel, squid, beans, peas, artichokes and peppers, the version served by Bluewater is made with shrimp, scallops, mussels, clams, chicken and Spanish chorizo sausage.

The cost of the Sept. 10 pairing event is $40 per person, a $13 savings off the regular $53 menu price, and includes a seafood tapas starter, Bluewater’s original paella and an assortment of hand-selected wines from Spain, including a White “Rueda” and a Tempranillo. Reservations are encouraged for sittings beginning at 6:30 p.m.  Bluewater chefs and servers will be available to discuss the differences between the shellfish varieties, recipes and techniques.

In addition to the special Sept. 10 tasting events, customers can order Spanish paella from the lunch and dinner menus throughout the remainder of the month. During this time, the featured Spanish wines will be available by the glass at the menu price.
