    Tapas we’ve been loving for years include goat-cheese-stuffed red peppers, crusty bread rubbed with tomatoes & layered with thinly sliced Manchego, a textbook gazpacho, & warm dates wrapped in bacon.

    Be sure to stop by on Wednesday nights when flamenco dancers transport you to Spain over plates of tiny tapas. Try the eggplant flan or eel with shallots for an exotic snack, and don't forget sangria.

    Complement a glass of sangria with Ibérico ham, croquetas served in a shoe and, of course, a variety of paellas served in pans that feed six or more. [Eater 38 Member]
