This is always one of my favorite places to visit when I'm home. It's a great place for groups to be able to try lots of different small bites. This past visit we shared beef cheeks, grilled octopus, chickpeas and spinach, empanadas and meatballs.

The outside patio has a radiant-heated floor and its retractable awning encloses the area allowing for the space to be utilized all year.
