Contemporary adaptations of traditional Spanish tapas comprise the menu at this Old City restaurant, which was opened in 2005 by James Beard Award-winning chef Jose Garces. Aged Serrano hams dangle from the ceiling, barrels of sangria are stacked against the wall behind the bar, and tables are lantern-lit. There are more than 60 varieties of tapas, from charcuterie plates, to spicy soups, to vegetable-stuffed empanadas. Some specialty dishes, such as lobster paella, can be ordered by the platter for larger groups. Several cocktails pay homage to the movies of Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar; the Bad Education is made with spiced gin, cucumber, and lemon, and the Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down is a mix of vodka, lemon, and rosemary.
