Snug and pimento-red inside, this is Boston's first tapas bar to fully capture authentic Spanish cuisine. Kick off dinner with a choice of about 40 hot and cold tapas, including such classics as a tortilla Española, shrimp in garlic oil, braised eggplant, and jamón Serrano. Then, consider one of the select entrées, such as cuttlefish and squid-ink paella, charred rib-eye, or grilled lamb chops. The owners have hand-selected an inexpensive all-Spanish wine list with
more than 325 varieties, of which 44 are sherry and manzanilla, including some sweet ones to accompany the traditional Spanish desserts of flan or cheeses with quince paste. An outdoor patio fills up throughout the summer.
