Tapas - small portions meant to be ordered a few dishes at a time as appetizers or even full meals - are still a relatively novel concept in central Arkansas, where the dining-out mantra tends to be "more is more." (They can be found as part of the fare at Ciao Baci and Rumba! Revolution!)
Now tapas, whose homeland is Spain, are gaining a higher profile here as the heart of the menu at month-old Capi's, the breezy new endeavor of Trio's owners Capi Peck and Brent Peterson.
Tucked into the Pleasant Ridge Town Center space previously occupied by defunct Imagine a Restaurant, Capi's boasts a distinctive piece of interior decor. Dominating the bar, it's the eye-catching sculpted skeleton of a post oak tree rescued from razing and hewed by woodworker artist Keith Norton. It actually has been given a name: Stella (from Quercus stellata, the Latin designation).
Capi's menu arrangement is distinctive as well, divided into Small Plates, Salad Plates, Sandwich Plates (lunch only), After Five and After Five Sides.
Those Small Plates are the tapas, which Peck describes as "a grazing experience" and "my favorite way to eat." She understands that tapas "are going to be a bit of an education around here. Some people just want a piece of meat and a big ol' baked potato."
