Owned by José Andrés, Rob Wilder, and Roberto Alvarez of ThinkFoodGroup, Jaleo opened in 1993 and serves traditional Spanish tapas, as well as paellas and sangrias. Andrés, a native Spaniard, serves as head chef and has created a menu of flavorful fare, including pollo al ajillo con salsa verde, marinated chicken with parsley purée and garlic sauce, and chorizo casero tradicional, traditional chorizo sausage with potato purée. Six different kinds of paella are available, and menu selections can be complemented by a glass of sangria or a cocktail.

Insider Tip:

Paellas take 30 minutes to prepare, so plan accordingly if you have plans after dinner.
