The dark, tenebrist atmosphere seems ripe for romance, but don’t expect to have a quiet conversation with your dining partner at La Paella. Instead, succumb to the party atmosphere and the Spanish techno of this energetic Basque eatery. The namesake paella comes in five flavors, and all are abundant with tasty ingredients like chorizo, vegetables and various seafood. For indecisive diners, tapas allows for a culinary exploration of the Spanish peninsula, so order an assortment as you pour yourself a pitcher of the light and fruity sangria.Note
Reservations are only accepted for parties of six or more.Recommended Dishes
