This Prospect Heights restaurant maintains a traditional Spanish design and menu with considerable success, bringing a much-needed tapas bar to the neighborhood. Walking in, you’re greeted by rustically painted walls topped with a long line of wine bottles. The space is small, but intimate—perfect to slip into on a blustery night for a small plate and a robust glass of wine. First and foremost a tapas bar, the list of options is extensive. Whether you’re in the mood for heavier dishes like lamb meatballs, or something lighter like seared vegetables with Romesco sauce, you’ll be nibbling throughout the entire meal. The pork options are especially good, like deviled eggs with crispy pork belly and scallions, and the tuna empanadas are not to be overlooked, either. Though you could fill up on an array of small plates, also consider a full entrée. The crispy-sweet roasted suckling pig is a standout, while the toasted angel hair pasta with mushroom ragù is a nice alternative to the heavy and salty red-wine-stewed beef cheeks. The wine list is full of earthy reds befitting the regionalism of the menu, and the bar serves fruity sangria specials throughout happy hour.
