This fetching tapas spot serves 50 Spanish small plates and 50 Spanish wines—no international fusion experiments here. Upon entering, you’ll notice funky wrought-iron lanterns hanging over the bar and lovely, shiny black shelves holding bottles of wine. The dishes are often quite pretty: Seared sea scallops, for example, lay in a pastel-colored asparagus puree. There are plenty of wines, but when in España, order the rioja.
