An important part of Devotay's menu is Tapas. Tapas are small dishes meant to be shared. The tradition originated in Spain where it still thrives today. Our menu features a wide variety of flavors with options for nearly every palate: organic grass-fed meats, fresh seafood, locally made tofu, interesting cheeses, vegetarian and gluten free options. Seasonal vegetables are delivered to Devotay daily by Green Share Co-op and are featured in tapas and daily features. Unsure of how to order? Start with 2 or 3 tapas and see how you feel! You can always order more.
