Estragon Restaurant Review

: Julio de Haro's taperia, an airy, lace-curtained Art Deco space, offers an interesting, mostly Spanish wine list and an array of sophisticated tapas. Get started with a glass of tasty sangría, dispensed from an outlandishly mammoth antique beverage fountain, and then share some nibbles like chorizo, duck confit or grilled skirt steak pintxos (tapas on toast). We like the sautéed garlic shrimp and littleneck clams with Serrano ham. The 16-ounce grilled rib-eye, braised rabbit or rolled, fried pork loin are also worthy choices. The spacious bar area includes some lounge-style seating plus plenty of standing room for folks who prefer to stroll about cocktail party-style while they drink with one hand and eat with the other. Service is usually relaxed and enthusiastic --- but sometimes verges on scatter-brained. The adjoining epicurean boutique, Las Ventas, is a good place to stock up on authentic Spanish meats, cheeses and other gourmet groceries.
