La Paella (CLOSED)
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Patrons sit on wooden benches at intimate, wobbly tables; dried roses line the ceiling and Spanish tunes set the mood. (There’s an even cozier downstairs room.) On a date? Order the sangria with the platos mixtos, a tapas sampler that includes a potato omelette and cold octopus salad tossed with olive oil, tomatoes and parsley. Gambas al ajillo (garlic shrimp) are succulent, swimming in a broth begging to be soaked up by some dense bread. Traditional paella is also meant for sharing. Ignore the American entries on the dessert menu; go for the sweet, creamy flan.
