The name means "sandwiches," but that's only half the story here. You'll find 13 bocadillos at lunchtime: plump rolls filled with everything from serrano ham to Catalan sausage with arugula to a memorable lamb burger (pick two for $10). But at night chef-owner Gerald Hirigoyen, who also owns the high-profile Piperade, focuses on tapas, offering some two dozen choices, including a roasted Monterey Bay squid, an equally superb pig's trotters with chopped egg salad, and patatas bravas (potatoes) with romesco sauce (a thick combination of red pepper, tomato, almonds, and garlic). His wine list is well matched to the dishes. A youngish crowd typically piles into the dining space, decorated with red-brick walls, wire chairs, and small square light fixtures. Be prepared to wait for a seat. The large communal table is a good perch for singles. If you're in the neighborhood at breakfast time, there is plenty here to keep you happy, including a scrambled-eggs-and-cheese bocadillo or house-made chorizo and eggs.
