Sherry and Tapas at Jamonera
David Snyder reviews Jamonera for City Paper this week. He’s as impressed with the sherry program as he is with the Spanish tapas.
“Sherry? Not happening in Philly.”
It is now. The list on which that El Maestro Sierra Amontillado appears, engineered by manager Terence Lewis, is staggeringly deep — 44 different sherries spanning 10 styles, from the light, bracing salinity of finos to the unctuous, stewed-figiness of Pedro Ximénez. Without the counsel of Jamonera’s well-informed staff, such depth would be overwhelming. Engage the staff, however, and soon you may gain the confidence to start your own sherry bodega.
