Aventura offers diners Spanish tapas in Ann Arbor Michigan.

I’m sitting in a dimly lit space, surrounded by a wine cellar, exposed stonework and giant illuminated letters on the wall that spell out ‘Aventura’ like a Broadway sign.  The modern Spanish tapas restaurant located in one of Ann Arbor’s oldest buildings is full of patrons tonight. I snack on grilled mushrooms with sherry, cream and truffle honey (coca del bosque), lamb meatballs with manchego, rich creamy almond picada (albondigas) and thrice cooked potatoes with a sunny side up egg, honey aioli and brava sauce (patatas bravas).

A waiter first brings the enormous, signature paella del mar, gleaming with golden yellow rice and studded with fresh seafood, before returning with a wooden plank of cochinillo– a whole roasted suckling pig served with a trio of sauces.
