Even before Jose Garces became a Food Network star, he shone brightly on the Philadelphia food stage with his traditional Spanish tapas restaurant, Amada. Its 2005 arrival introduced the small plates concept to the city, and while the idea has caught on, no one does it quite like the original. Come for dishes like the freshly sliced charcuteria and the tortilla Espanola, and stay for inventive cocktails—like lemon rosemary martinis and the Matador cocktail, made with ginger, bourbon and elderflower—and flamenco dancing.
