We love small bites like asparagus poached egg crostini + mini stout-infused shepherd’s pies, but there is something about a *family* style meal. Tables teeming with delicious fare + whole-hearted conversation… it’s just oh-so-good for the soul. Tostadas Bar | Red Stamp Tostadas are excellent for family night dinners. Whether it’s your average Friday night or a special celebration {Cinco de Mayo!}, they won’t disappoint. Tostadas are simple to prepare and allow each person to customize his or her plate to his or her own taste buds/dietary needs.
