Chef/owners Eder Montero and Alex Raij prove that size doesn't matter with this stellar Chelsea tapas spot. Calling it small doesn't really doesn't do it justice; inside, a thick, curved marble bar provides most of the seating, with a barstool-lined narrow counter providing the only other place to set down your small plates. High ceilings, patterned wallpaper and tasteful chandeliers give the place a sophisticated feel, which explains why you'll probably see so many people on dates here. The uni Panini, which pairs warm, creamy sea urchin with a crisp baguette, is an absolute stroke of genius. A few more examples of Raij's skill: a Sevillian stew of braised chickpeas and spinach, shrimp cooked with garlic, jalapeno and ginger, saffron-scented chicken wings. Pair your small plates with one of the Spanish wines from the carefully selected rotating wine list or opt for one of the specialty cocktails.—Keith Wagstaff
