Ten years after Tapas de Lola, La Gordita storms onto the scene with Spanish bodega-style dining. The menu is flabbergastingly phenomenal. It would make even the most adamant heretic awestruck at its diligent prowess. There isn’t a dish on the menu to avoid or to disappoint, and what’s great is that it’s tapas style, so you can just keep ordering as you go. The menu changes with the seasons, too, so there will always be something a little different if you want to go back again and again and again. They also do a surprisingly cracking martini.
