Not only is the food delectable, but Gaetano Frankel provides the spirit and passion of authentic flamenco guitar from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. A native of Seville, Spain – the heart of flamenco heritage – Frankel learned the art of his music as a young boy by accompanying gypsy singers. By 13, he was touring with top recording artists in Spain.
