Tasca de Plata Tapas Bar & Restaurant (Closed) Image

Owner José Montes has done his best to give this former diner a Spanish feel by arranging shawls on the windows and decorating it with blue-and-yellow tiles, not to mention having flamenco dance on Friday and Saturday nights. That convivial feeling charms diners, who can choose from a menu with significant accommodations to middle-American sensibilities. Nearly everybody seems to order paellas and tapas, which encompass about 30 items, with both hot and cold selections. Entrées include lamb chops, grilled chicken, shrimp, salmon and lobster. The inexpensive wine list is mostly Spanish and has some good finds.
