Stopping at MoVida, we found it busy and all the tables taken. The host recommended we walk "next door" literally to MoVida Next Door. Smaller, more intimate, seating next to the bar and the window was good enough for tapas. We had several excellent tapas,...More

throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
