Fodor's Expert Review Ora Wine and Tapas
Living up to its Maori name---Ora means "life"---this airy tapas restaurant specializes in hot and cold small plates such as crab claws, Manchego Caesar tacos, or chicken, chorizo, and buffalo mozzarella fritters. More substantial dishes are spiced glazed pork, braised shiitake, and barbecue mushroom, or a cumin roasted cauliflower curry. Dessert highlights include homemade trifle, baked meringue, and a whiskey crème brûlée. Cocktail lovers plump for Irish Goodbye, made up of Roe & Co. premium-blended Irish whiskey, passion fruit, and soda, and Cocchi Americano, a quinine-laced aperitif wine.
