Spanish food doesn't possess the big flavors that have attracted so many Americans to southwestern fare, but chef/owner Bobby Flay has the audacity to inject some and the skill to make it work. In an unfortunate room that reminds you of Gaudi by way of Pee-wee Herman, items as modest-sounding as salmon tartare on a chick pea polenta cake, black squid ink risotto, and black pepper-crusted sirloin exhibit pure bravado.Prix-Fixe Menu
