Homemade Spanish seafood casseroles and splendid soups are the main draws at this small restaurant on a shady street. A line snakes around the block at peak hours, but it's worth the wait to find a table: the food is terrific. Seafood paella is among the most popular of the generously portioned traditional dishes. The waiters, clad in white suits, add to the old-time atmosphere. The restaurant doesn't accept credit cards, so be sure to have cash.
