Profile

This venue is closed.

Named for a rare variety of well-aged sherry, this tapas bar has its requisite share of candlelit ambiance, sponge-painted walls, and tables for two. The menu offers tapas frias and calientes, served on delicate dishes with sleek modernist flatware. Lightly spiced options such as patatas bravas, shishito peppers, and a paella of bomba saffron rice, piquillo peppers, corn, and chickpeas counter cooler entries like an esalada de esparrago con huevo frito. There's also a winning plate of gently piquant lamb meatballs in a mint cucumber yogurt. Generous meat-and-cheese combos include add-ons like spicy almonds and a sweet quince jam to enhance a creamy goat’s milk cheese, an especially tart blue crumble, and thick chunks of aged, dry-cured ham. Desserts, like a caramel-covered flan and chocolate cake, are missable.
