Tapas at Vida by Lorentes

Vida by Lorentes in the Lace Market is a family run tapas restaurant that has recently opened in the space formerly occupied by The Last Chance Saloon. I popped along recently to check them out and to try a couple of dishes. Spoiler alert is that the food was really tasty so I suspect that…
