    You don't often get authentic Spanish Tapas, but this place gets it just right. Get the pollo, chorizo, cauliflower. Avoid gambas al ajillo, sour and not enough garlic. Follow me on IG @simplysavor

    I cant think of one standout dish here I had, and I had quite a few. This is an extremely overrated James Beard restaurant--better food at Zaytinya

    Everything was amazing!!!! I had the Idiazabal cheese which was excellent and melted in my mouth. The Jamon iberico fermin was definitely an experience. Tuna tartare was small but really tasty.
