Bid adios to the Seaport and transport yourself to Buenos Aires at this tiny, bi-level Latin American tapas spot, styled with whitewashed walls and slowly rotating ceiling fans. Sip a stiff mojito or caipirinha at the bar alongside loosened-tie traders and gabby couples, before luxuriating in an oversize seat. From there, dive into a seafoodcentric sampling of codfish croquettes suffused with fragrant saffron and tequila-chipotle shrimp, before breaking out the bib for paella, studded with shrimp, mussels, clams—and a cracker-required lobster claw.
