A dish from Loco Tapas and Wine Bar in South EastonBOSTON (CBS) – It may be in the burbs, but it’s hot and happening.

The Phantom Gourmet recently visited a popular spot for Spanish cuisine south of Boston at “Loco” in South Easton.   CLICK HERE to see the video at CBS Boston.

Opened in 2006 by Culinary Institute of America graduate Jim Messinger, Loco Tapas and Wine Bar serves up inventive twists on Spanish classics.

The dining room sports warm colors and dim lighting, while the bar is lively and comfortable.

The food, meanwhile, will transport you straight to southern Spain. First and foremost, people come to Loco for the tapas, like the imported serrano ham or the sizzling shrimp, sautéed with garlic, olive oil, and herbs.

Just a few of these small plates can make a great meal, or you can opt for one of Loco’s larger plates like paella, stuffed chicken, and seared beef tenderloin with cheese sauce and horseradish mashed potatoes.

Wash it all down with some housemade sangria and finish your meal with creamy chocolate flan, and you’ll be loco for Loco.

What offerings around town are an absolute must? We asked five foodies, and what emerged was one giant, irresistible menu – from appetizers to desserts – that gives a glimpse of Greater Boston dining at its boldest, cleverest, and most satisfying.

Paella $25 at Loco Tapas & Wine Bar The tapas are decent; the wine is fine. But the paella – robbed of equal marquee billing – is the sleeper hit. Devoid of the porridgey homogeneity plaguing lesser versions, the rice in this saffron-scented dream has just the right consistency and proves a proper bed for nestling garlicky chorizo, briny mussels, and tender smoked chicken.   (Click Here for entire article)

With Spanish flair, Easton spot is crazy good

Joan Wilder, Globe Correspondent

...Loco Tapas & Wine Bar is a great example of a place that serves authentic Spanish tapas and more. Executive chef and owner James Messinger discovered tapas through a love of Spanish wines that led him to Spain after graduating from the Culinary Institute of America. Soon after opening his restaurant three years ago, he added some main courses and a selection of grilled meats for those who think tapas aren’t filling enough...  (Click Here for entire article)
