Fodor's Review

You are encouraged to make a meal of the long list of tapas at this lively Spanish bistro, although the five types of handcrafted paella are the stars of an ample entrée menu. Tapas highlights include the gambas al ajillo (sautéed garlic shrimp), tender piquillo peppers stuffed with goat cheese, and the grilled homemade chorizo, which also comes draped in velvety mashed potatoes. Adventurers are encouraged to sample the octopus. Cocktail specialties range from a sweet and fruity sangria to a half-dozen herbal riffs on the gin and tonic. Two spin-off locations, in Bethesda, Maryland, and Crystal City, Virginia, are equally memorable.
