Fodor's Expert Review Casa Gerardo

$$ La Latina Spanish Fodor's Choice
Huge tinajas, clay vessels once filled to the brim with bulk wine (yet now defunct), sit behind the bar at this raucous, no-frills bodega specializing in Spanish cheese and charcuterie. Ask the waiters what they've been drinking and eating lately, and order precisely that. The washed-rind cheeses from Extremadura (such as Torta del Casar and Pascualete) are always a safe—and pleasantly putrescent—bet.
