THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED De la Torre's Spanish Restaurant & La Bodega Tapas Bar Restaurant Review

: Madrid native Miguel De La Torre knows his paella and makes five different versions. Paella de carnes (pork, chorizo, chicken), arroz negré (seafood paella with squid ink), paella verduras (vegetarian), paella langosta (lobster) and arroz con costra (made with a variety of meats and finished in the oven to form a savory crust). Equally fine are the fork-tender roasted lamb and salmon in Champagne sauce. You can choose a seat in the tile-accented dining room with burgundy red tablecloths and subdued lighting, or the more casual tapas bar next door. La Bodega’s menu serves classic little dishes from tortilla de patata (Spanish potato omelet, closer to a frittata) to “pisto manchego,” similar to ratatouille. Maggie De La Torre runs the front of the house and mixes fine cocktails. The menu is complemented by an exclusively Spanish wine list. Do order the rich chocolate torte at meal’s end.
