“Authentic Spanish cuisine. The owners, Carlos and Elena, are both from Spain and will welcome you with open arms. Their tapas are delicious--my faves are the patatas ali-bravas and the mixed tapa plate. They also are very GF friendly if you have a problem with gluten. Try their white sangria! Amazing!”
