This spot, whose name means "local gathering place" in Spanish, features a festive interior filled with mosaics, hand-painted tiles and murals created by local artists. The menu offers both hot and cold tapas like grilled baby octopus, and herbed goat cheese baked in tomato sauce on the hot side, and cured Spanish meats and aged cheeses on the cold side, plus more substantial fare like paella. House-made sangria is the beverage of choice, but there is also a wine list with a Spanish focus, with several by-the-glass options.
