We were headed to another restaurant for dinner but found a parking place in front of VivaVino and hearing music we stopped in. Elliot Lawrence was playing guitar and he was awesome. We stayed for dinner and drinks.
The Tapas are terrific. We ordered a bottle of Spanish wine and started with bacon wrapped chorizo and the Mediterranean olives with roasted almonds. We moved on to potato crusted salmon (this was our favorite dish though all were wonderful) and the crab and shrimp empanada. We finished with the baked Brie. A great meal with great service.
The highlight was the guitar player who we found out was filling in for the regular sax player. He did more than fill in he had us all mesmerized with his classical guitar playing. We found out he plays at the Sheraton in San Diego on Friday nights so we will see him on our next trip here.
VivaVino is now one of our Temecula favorites.
