Concierge.com's insider take:
This is where hip, in-the-know locals eat when they don't want to trek through a casino. One block east of the Strip, it was the first true tapas restaurant of note in Vegas and still attracts artists, musicians, and media types. The classic duo of manchego cheese and thinly sliced Serrano ham is served as warm, gooey croquettes; chorizo sausage is integrated into the white-wine sauce for steamed clams. A few non-Iberian dishes, such as beer-battered shrimp tempura with ponzu dipping, lend an international feel. The wine list has some good Argentine malbecs and Chilean merlots, but most folks order red or white sangria—the recipe calls for three days of marinating.
Open Sundays through Thursdays 11:30 am to 2 am, Fridays and Saturdays 11:30 am to 3 am.
