Tides, Cape Town

69 Victoria Rd. , The Bay Hotel
Cape Town , South Africa

Located at the Bay Hotel, this upscale South African restaurant provides panoramic views of Camps Bay through a wall of sliding glass windows, which are kept open when the weather is pleasant. The dining room also contains white-clothed tables, light wood chairs, and off-white walls, which enhance the bright, airy setting. Emphasizing local ingredients, the menu includes dishes like fresh oysters with mango chutney, followed by smoked kudu with melon. A temperature-controlled, walk-in wine cellar houses a wide variety of regional vintages, some of which are incorporated into entrées like the springbok served with a local Shiraz reduction.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Seasonal Spanish tapas are prepared by husband-and-wife team Alexandra Alexandra Raij and Eder Montero in a sliver of a space near Chelsea's art galleries. Manhattan was oddly lacking in great tapas bars until Tía Pol came along. Now, the pitch-perfect tapas and the all-Spanish wine list draw in fans from all over the city, which means there are constant crowds at the door. Also a Go List selection in <a href="/golist/2007/property.cfm?label=tia-pol"> 2007</a> and <a href="/golist/2006/list.cfm?region=8&city=new-york">2006</a>.

We loved: The sandwich of chorizo sprinkled with bittersweet chocolate.
