Notes: From our roving restaurant reporter, we got this about Chata Camara’s:
A small shop filled with wine, locally made desserts, pre-made or made to order sandwiches and other international sweet and savory treats fill this space.
Just in time for the holidays, or simply a nice place to know about for finding that ‘something special’ bottle of wine or food item. Whether it’s for a picnic or at home, the shop has daily made sandwiches and freshly prepared desserts on the go. This wine and cheese shop features a selection of wines, cheeses, cured meats, cookies, pastries and a variety of goodies just right for grabbing prior to a party, to have on hand when guests stop over, or at this time of year–to request a made-to-order specialty basket perfect for a holiday gift.
They make their own pastries, pies and cookies. Specialty deli meats and cheeses are available by slices or in freshly made sandwiches or on deli trays. Imported items that stock their small shops shelves include items from Germany, England, France and the US-cookies, chocolates, olives, jarred vegetables, tinned meats, PEZ dispensers, escargot, a wide selection of items perfect for a picnic, party food or gift basket, etc along with a nice selection single malt scotches and wines not available to supermarkets stock the shelves. They also do full service catering. David Mier y Teran, the owner, is third generation in the family to continue on his grandmother’s recipes and love for fine food.
