638 Bergen St., Brooklyn, NY 11238, United States

Graduating at the top of her class from the Culinary Institute of America, chef Deborah Bicknese opened this unique Spanish tapas place in Prospect Heights to the delight of many. A New York magazine Critics’ Pick, the restaurant impresses as much with its iron chandeliers, blood-red walls, and gargoyle statues as with the meat, fish, and vegetable tapas dishes like creamy blue cheese polenta, pan-roasted pork tenderloin, and Moroccan-spiced salmon salad. Loud music and a socially progressive clientele give the place an additional edge. Outdoor seating is also available.
