    A great place for drinking wine, especially if you can get the railing seat that looks out on 20th. Just settle in and watch the world go by.

    Looking for a new white wine? Go with Castiila y Leon'a unique Albillo grape variety by Yunquera (West/Galicia). A nice option with generous fruit & nice citrus. Visit agwine.com for more wine tips.

    Drawing inspiration from the rich cultural and culinary traditions of Basque country, Tinto is tantalizing Northern Spanish cuisine at its finest. Try the duck confit montadito.

    The sopa de castano was fantastic. avoid sitting upstairs because of the smoke from kitchen.

    Like full-bodied red wine? Try a glass of Rejadorada Toro. Lovely tannins and nice kick at the finish. Pair it with the shortrib tapas. Pow!

    The tapas menu here isn't extensive, but it's pretty good. Cocktails are well crafted with many options. My personal favourite was the octopus, I recommend it highly.

    Lamb brochettes (with a refreshing center of eggplant) and duck confit montaditos and pulpo: wow, what a trio! (The lamb is my top pick.)

    Amada's pricier sibling. Also great Spanish small plates, this time Pintxos. Foursquare says it's a breakfast spot, but I've only done dinner.
