This longtime Village eatery allows you to tour Spain and its colonies. Traditional Spanish tapas and paellas find their place next to Cuban dishes like ropa vieja and picadillo a la criolla and Mexican dishes like fajitas and enchiladas. With its dark wood and booths lining the walls, the spacious restaurant has the feel of a taverna. The extensive wine list includes choices from the New World as well as the Old.
