In the oldest usage, which survives in informal form to the present day, a serenade is a musical greeting performed for a lover, friend, person of rank or other person to be honored. The classic serenade usage would be from a lover to his lady love through a window. It was considered an evening piece, one to be performed on a quiet and pleasant evening. The custom of serenading in this manner began in the Medieval era, and the word "serenade" as commonly used in current English is related to this custom.
In this spirit, we at Santiagos feel that a good meal, a little vino, and a soft serenade by Spanish guitar is what makes for a lovely evening. And with Juan DeGranada, he makes a point of blending into the background as you enjoy small talk around the table, or perhaps popping that big question to the love of your life. So come on out any Friday or Saturday, and enjoy his large repertoire of classics and present day favorites.
