Abigail's Party information
A romantic little tapas and wine haunt that creates its own atmosphere depending on the crowd filling its small, candlelit tables. The idea here is to sit back, order some tapas and explore the wine list. The duck confit and buttermilk fried chicken dishes are great if you're starving, but the bruschetta and creole mussels are ideal for sharing.
There's a good array of bottled craft beers alongside the blackboard wine list, but save room for an end-of-night whiskey: there are a couple of dozen to choose from. A short uphill stroll from Kits Beach, this is a good spot to cool down your tan and grab dinner after your day in the sun.
