This narrow, cozy tapas bar offers serviceable versions of the standards, and is unique in the neighborhood. Drink affordable Spanish wine by the bottle or glass and share a tapa or two. Skip the not-crisp patatas bravas in favor of very fine salt cod or jamon croquettes. Tender octopus with potatoes is tasty, as are the tart white anchovies called boquerones, served with spicy aioli and bread.
