Blink and you might miss this skinny little room looking onto Maple Tree Square, which would be a pity, because here’s where you’ll find the most authentic Spanish tapas experience in the city. Watch the chef (hope for owner Andrey Durbach) prep dishes in a tiny workstation behind the bar (a couple of hot plates, a small countertop oven) and deliver them in the tiny pots they were cooked in. Everything is fresh and flavourful, but be sure to order smoked sardines on toast, chorizo sausage cooked in sherry, and patatas bravas with garlic aioli and tomatoÑa lesson in just how good simple, traditional dishes can be. You’d be crazy to skip the brick of chocolate terrine dusted with sea salt and chili, sprinkled with floral olive oil, and served with grilled baguetteÑa savoury dessert you’ll be dreaming about for days.
