Food & Wine magazine is running a best new bar contest, and Durham’s Mateo Tapas bar is in the running.
About Mateo, the magazine wrote: “Bar-goers can take advantage of Mateo Tapas’s impressive sherry collection – one of the largest in the country – by ordering a glass, a bottle or one of the tasting flights, or by sampling a house cocktail, such as the Rye Malvado, made with amontillado, vermouth and saffron.”
The public will vote for the winners in five regions across the country. Voting ends Sept. 30. To vote, go to http://foodandwine.com/best-bars.
Mateo is at 109 W. Chapel Hill St., Durham, 919-530-8700, mateotapas.com.
