          Second El Pote. Love their veal cordon bleu and the green beans it comes with. The paella has class (I'm not exactly sure why I chose that adjective) as well. As a caveat, I haven't been there in a couple of years...but that's a schedule and location thing, not a food thing.

        2. I like La Nacional. For Spanish recipes, post on the Home Cooking board.

          1. Solera is great for high-end Spanish cuisine, they have a tapas bar space as well.

            1. Pamplona, Suba, El Cid. Heard La Nacional is mediocre food but rustic Spanish mom-and-popish decor (not been myself yet).
              Always on the lookout for great Spanish, please report back!

              1. I like Casa Mono - portions are a little bigger than tapas, but definitely "small plates". Not completely traditional, but certainly delicious. I like the room, but it small and posters often mention feeling cramped. Excellent Spanish wine list, as well.

                  Yeah, I'm one of those who finds the exceedingly tight seating at Casa Mono annoying. But I do agree that the food is delicious.

                  Pamplona is my favorite Spanish restaurant though I know you and others do not share my enthusiasm for Chef/owner Alex Urena's inventive cuisine.

                    Ha - thanks for saving me a reply about Pamplona ;-).
