A new Spanish restaurant and wine bar made its debut in Melrose shortly before the end of 2016 and is now going strong in the new year. T’ahpas 529 is up and running at 529 Franklin St., serving tapas, Spanish wines, and so much more.

The restaurant is the work of Lorenzo and Emily Tenreiro, who are also behind Coffee Tea and Me and La Qchara, both located in Melrose, as previously reported. (When the T’ahpas project was first announced almost a year ago, Grill 23 alum Erik Powers was onboard as executive chef, but he is no longer involved; he’s over at Boston Chops in the South End these days.)

T’ahpas 529 has been open since the end of December, according to posts on the restaurant’s Facebook page. The menu includes items like jamón Ibérico, ham croquetas, roasted quail, patatas bravas, and seared duck breast, along with some seafood options like octopus, sauteed shrimp, and calamari. There are also charcuterie offerings, and to drink, there are plenty of Spanish wines, cocktails, and some craft beers.

T’ahpas 529 is open from 4 to 10 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, from 4 to 11 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and from 4 to 9 p.m. on Sunday.
