Tapas can be expensive, but this Brighton gem makes them more affordable. Before you go to the restaurant, sign up for the e-mails — there are often great prix fixe “stimulus” menus offered every month. Also, a good indication for the quality of a tapas joint is the sangria it offers. Tasca has an eclectic sangrias menu that rotates based on the seasons.
Ideal for: Tapas on a budget.
