    Bacon with dates, lamb stuffed peppers, and fried potatoes were standouts. Iberian old fashioned is cloyingly sweet--disappointing. Beware you may wait, even with a reservation.

    Great food, although not a huge amount of options for non-meat eaters. Try sitting at the bar to eat if it's full.

    Much of the jazzed menu leans towards tapas, especially with charcuterie and cheese — including the famous Spanish ham, pata negra, or Iberian ham, cured from the black pigs of Spain. Read more

    The Tacino (seared pork belly) was outrageously good, and for dessert I highly recommend the gelato trio (dulce de leche, fig and salty pistachio) with an Iberian Old Fashioned to complement it.
