Heading there in March for a birthday celebration. What are your faves?
JonasBrand has given a detailed account of select dishes from a few months back:
There's more general discussion and some recs in another thread too if you're willing to wade through. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/895137
I enjoyed the bone marrow personally.
Basque cake and Cumbrae's ribeye are both great, the former, outstanding. Shishito peppers are a go-to for me as well.
The octopus is delicious, the patatas Bravas supreme-O version is total stoner food, and the fried chicken (only available late night) is some of the best in the city. The ribeye was ok, nothing special IMO and expensive for what it is. But I've never been a fan of ordering any steaks in the city as my SO is exceptional with that at home, so it's never worth it for me. I also don't get the love for the peppers. I did really enjoy a chickpea dish last time I was there though.
The Morcilla and foie on brioche is rich but delicious.
The cocktails are very well done, wine list is good but expect high markups.
