Location Description:

It might have switched owners since opening in 2004, but that hasn't stopped stylish crowds from frequenting this tiny Chelsea tapas spot. You'll have to squeeze by the packed bar to reach the hostess; reservations here are a must, as it's almost always crowded. There isn't much more to the restaurant than the front bar area, just a few banquettes and stools crowded up against a narrow counter. If you need more room, you can always book a private party in the relatively big back room. If you want to eat without the hassle, stop by during lunchtime, when you can walk in and order sandwiches like the crispy squid po¹boy along with the normal tapas menu. Start off with a bowl of fried chickpeas and then move on to other Spanish small plates like the chorizo in sherry, the squid served with ink and rice, and the lamb skewers cooked in Moorish spices. Complement everything with a glass or bottle from the all-Spanish wine list.—Keith Wagstaff
