THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bocado Restaurant Review

: Bocado is a Spanish tapas bar with a commitment to authenticity that offers a delightful dining experience without making you spend too much "guita." Like its predecessor in this Valley Street location, Cuban Revolution, Bocado is a big restaurant in an offbeat spot. But the "Bocado Experience" is well worth the trip: $75 will buy you dinner for two including a pair of starters, four tapas, a paella and dessert, plus leftovers. Choose from an exclusively Spanish wine list, the light and fruity house sangrĂ­a or cider served in a traditional porron. Starting with the charcuteria, we recommend the nutty manchego cheese and aromatic pheasant sausage. Among the many hot and cold tapas, go for the marinated vegetables, grilled foie gras (an occasional special) and shrimp burgers. A choice of four paellas includes a vegetable-only version of the Spanish staple, and waitstaff is more than willing to customize the ingredients to your liking. Churros with chocolate sauce are the obvious choice for dessert.
