Inside Joyia Tapas in the Grove 

This week's RFT features a review of Joyia Tapas (4501 Manchester Ave.) in the western end of the Grove neighborhood. Joyia owner Chuck Pener is no stranger to the small-plates concept as he's a partner in western-reaches-of-University-City fixture Momos Ouzaria Taverna, which features Greek mezes. Here, the fare comes from a broader Mediterranean geography, also incorporating flavors from Morocco and Italy.
