Boogie Down Bites: Tin Marin

Posted: Updated:
RIVERDALE -

A Riverdale bar is bringing a European vibe mixed with a Latin touch to the borough. 

Tin Marin is known for its tapas menu of pan-Latin small plates, creative cocktails and live-music nights.

The name comes from the Spanish equivalent of "Eeny, meeny, miny, moe" owner Felix Abarca says.

It's a concept of being random and taking a chance Abarca says for those who visit the restaurant.

Abarca says the most popular dish at the restaurant is the "Gambas al Ajillo" which is Spanish for garlic shrimp.

"Take a chance whether you are on a date here or just chilling at the bar," Abarca says.
