Saffron in Howard Beach offers up a diverse menu of tapas.

At Saffron, a restaurant/tapas bar in Howard Beach, the menu focuses on traditional Spanish dishes and homemade delicacies while incorporating a surplus of heart-healthy ingredients. Traditional Spanish omlettes, homemade paella, a beautiful assortment of olives and cheeses – this establishment has a little bit of everything.

The menu at Saffron highlights traditional Spanish tapas – including seafood, veggies and meats. Tapas, or small dishes, are a staple of Spanish cuisine often served with aged wines and eaten with family or friends. At Saffron, something for everyone – oysters, sautéed shrimp, cornmeal crusted calamari, bacon wrapped scallops, lamb kabobs, olive tapenade – the list is never ending.

Order a bottle of wine, choose some tapas, and enjoy this authentic culinary experience that will transform the average Joe into a modern-day food connoisseur. If you’re in the mood for seafood, order the bacon wrapped scallions, served with a wild mushroom risotto. In the mood for something less traditional? Try the lamb kabobs served with tzaziki, cucumber and flatbread.

Typical tapas plates are available on the menu, such as the spinach and artichoke dip, quesadillas, and plato de Quesos (a divine assortment of cheeses). The infamous “Plato de Chacuteria” is a customer favorite, which combines meats, marinated olives and toasted crostini.

In addition to the tapas, Saffron offers a “build your own entrée” option – in which customers select one main course, one starch and one sauce. Choose from: steak, baby rack of lamb, lobster, red snapper, pan seared salmon, chicken or fresh cut pork chops. Another option for dinner is the paella – choose from seafood, meat, or vegetarian.

Make sure to order the house sangria which has become the “talk of the town” – choose from the Wildberry Red (a beautiful assortment of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries all immersed in berry vodka and red wine) or the White Peach (Absolut Peach, peach schnapps, white wine, peach nectar, peaches, oranges and apples). An impressive cocktail menu is available in addition to beer, sparkling wines and champagnes.

Saffron is the perfect “after work” spot to grab a bite and have a glass of wine. Classic ambiance, a surplus of culinary options and an impressive drink menu prove for an unrivaled dining experience. Management at Saffron offers half price bottles of wine Sunday to Thursday, and a killer lunch menu. Try the parpadelle pasta with braised short ribs, pepper crusted pork loin or chimichurri steak. The prix fixe lunch menu offers restaurant-goers a four course meal for under $30 – complete with salad, tapas, entrée and dessert.

If you’ve been searching for an innovative dining experience, Saffron is the answer. Good food, helpful staff and homemade infused cocktails – Saffron in Howard Beach has stepped outside the box and created a dining experience that will transform “first-timers” into regulars.
