Paella in the Mission ?

Years ago we had terrific paella in the Mission, on 24th street I believe. Does it still exist, does anybody know of a good restaurant serving paella?

  1. Esperpento in the Mission has paella on its menu, but the place I hear about is Zarzuela on Russian Hill.

    1. re: Rapini

      I actually had the paella at Esperpento about two weeks and was not that impressed. The mussels were not that fresh and the whole creation seemed on the pasty side.

      I'd head to Zarzuela, as Rapini has suggested.

    2. B44's is good, though I always get the arros negre.

      Patio Espa┼łol's used to be good, though I haven't been in years.

      The Berkeley Cesar makes the best paella I've had in a restaurant.
