It's hard to think of Charo-inspired space could be anything but tacky, but here it is. The decor was inspired by the intensity of the Latin siren's performance on The Ed Sullivan Show in the '70s, combined with the belle époque beauty and early Hollywood glamour. The result is surprisingly intimate and romantic, the perfect place to share a cocktail and a few small plates with a date. Just don't call it a tapas place; the owners will be quick to correct you—tapas are from Spain exclusively, while Cuchi Cuchi traffics in globe-trotting international fare.
