    Their anchovie stuffed olives are the BEST (and I don’t even like anchovies). And have you ever tried “smoked” olive oil with their crusty bread? YUM!

    What a great choice by both Mr. Easton and La Tienda management!
    We’re fortunate to have a firm of the caliber of La Tienda in our area.

    Love, Love, Love Tapas. It would be wonderful to have a Tapas Restaurant here in the Burg. I am tired of having to travel to northern Virginia to enjoy this cuisine. Hope the grand opening will be soon!
