The creamy yet spicy Jalapeñotini might be just enough to bring you to Carlos Hernández’s restaurant Tinto formerly his own Meigas, now readapted into the absolutely finest tapas in Connecticut. Even down to the white triptych plates, Hernández has thoughtfully recreated his own former restaurant. The space is a stunning 4,000-square-feet with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out on Wall Street in East Norwalk, which is equidistant from northern and southern Connecticut. There is a romantic sense here in a place that has thought a lot about the subtle look of the lights, enhanced by a street lighting glow that adds an urban aura.
