    Boquerones, gambas, and octopus all good. Tres leches cake can't be beat! Ignore negative post about the paella. I too have had it in Spain and both the meat and seafood versions at Zuzu are good.

    Great secret tapas place in downtown Napa. Get the potato omelette and paella. They don't take rezos so put your name on the list and post up down the street at Fagianis with a cocktail while you wait
