THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Fuego Spanish Grill Restaurant Review

: A sunny Atlanta day celebrated on the Fuego patio with a glass of cava or fino sherry accompanied by a plate of roasted almonds and very fine olives---that's Spain. These tapas don't replicate the sort of dishes one would find in Spain, but they're clearly in the spirit. And the list is long enough, with no dish exceeding $10, that one could focus on it alone. Chef-owner Rodney Wedge lets this global-Hispanic fare range from mushrooms in garlic-white wine sauce and shrimp with garlic olive oil, gambas al ajillo (very Spanish) to beef with chimichurri (Argentinean). Mains include paella and ropa vieja, from Cuba by way of Spain. First-rate desserts similarly embrace the Hispanic world. With this menu, you can decide how little or how much you want to eat, and you won't break your bank doing it. Lunch tilts to sandwich fare. The wine list offers lots by the glass, with most choices coming from Spain and South America.
