Chef Jose Garces' second Philadelphia restaurant, Tinto, takes its cues from the tapas and wine bars in the Basque region of Spain. The dining room is designed like a wine cellar; the walls are lined with wooden grids containing thousands of bottles from Northern Spain and Southwestern France. Though most of the plates are small, the menu is large, with an array of cut-to-order charcuterie, cheeses, soups, salads, meat skewers, and seafood. The diver scallops, served with bacon, shaved apple, and a cider demi-glace, are a specialty here.
