Bar Ferdinand Restaurant Review: Owen Kamihira's Bar Ferdinand, a sultry spot for the young cocktail drinking set in Northern Liberties, has been turned over to chef Matthew Daggett. The freshened-up classics comprise dishes such as patatas bravas, crispy Brussels sprouts with romesco, pork empanadas with mojo picon, and tender grilled octopus. Raciones or larger portions range from lamb coca with brandied date spread to roasted chicken thighs with chickpea purée and, of course, paella. Don't skip dessert --- the churros and chocolate are a crunchy, finger-licking treat. The sprawling wine and beer lists offer great variety and value, including a glass of house-made sangría for $7.50.
