MAS was conceived by Chef Tomas Rahal both as an antidote for the growing corporate fast-food presence in Charlottesville, and as an opportunity to feature slow, organic, artisinal foods and wines, especially those from Spain.
Emphasizing simple, well-made ingredients served in a casual neighborhood setting, MAS features Spanish tapas, which are traditionally eaten as snacks between meals. These bite-sized dishes are often shared communally in groups, and without any pretense or formality.
MAS showcases traditional cuisines while exploring innovative styles and techniques. They uniquely feature wood-fired artisinal brick oven breads, as well as slow-cooked braises of colchinillo asado and fresh seafood. From the first olive to the last sip of wine, Mas strives to exceed your expectations in every aspect of service.
