The restaurant slogan is “visiting Spain without the airfare.” That seems like an accurate description; the décor virtually drips with all things Spanish. The lighting is low. The tapas are meant to be shared and the tables seem to invite groups to sit down and enjoy. As a solo diner, I did not feel as welcome. I was seated at the “chef’s table”, a nice phrase for a bar facing the prep area with your back to all the excitement of the main dining area. Happily, the food made up for my unfortunate seating. I had the charred lamb chops with olive oil and rosemary, served on fabada. I also had a crusty bread with mushrooms, figs and manchego cheese. The lamb chops were especially wonderful – still rare under that charred exterior. If I lived in San Diego, I would go back to have those several times a month.
