Reinterpreting authentic Spanish tapas is the specialty of chef/owner Jose Garces, who used to work with Douglas Rodriguez (the "godfather" of Nuevo Latino cuisine). Traditional dishes like salt-cod croquette, clams and chorizo, and crab-stuffed piquillo peppers coexist with Garces's inventive cocas, Spanish flatbreads topped with vibrant combinations like duck, figs, and Cabrales cheese. The chef's counter—with a view of the kitchen—and the community tables in the bar are a good place to perch if you're dining alone, awaiting cut-to-order Serrano ham and aged Manchego with truffle-lavender honey. Spanish wines dominate the 40-bottle list, and house-made sangria—like the signature Blanco, a crisp white wine spiked with quince, pear, and lemon—steeps in oak barrels along the wall. Go on a Wednesday or Friday night to catch a flamenco performance.

Open Mondays through Thursdays 11:30 am to 2:30 pm and 5 to 10 pm, Fridays and Saturday 11:30 am to 2:30 pm and 5 pm to midnight, Sundays 4 to 10 pm.
