THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Laiola Restaurant Review

: Andrew McCormack and Joe Hargrave are behind this quaint Spanish spot where the food has a decidedly California sensibility but never loses sight of its roots. Bacon-wrapped Medjool dates stuffed with spicy chorizo offer bold, exciting flavors in a tiny package; rectangular chickpea croquettes stacked like Lincoln Logs incorporate all the best elements of french fries---a tender, fluffy inside wrapped in a crunchy outer shell. A mixed grill of piglet ranging from loin to crackle-topped belly is a highlight of the larger plates, as are the slices of grass-fed steak topped with Cabrales butter. For dessert, try the pan con chocolate, dark, rich ganache served with sea salt, olive oil and toasted slices of bread. The 100-plus wines are offered by the glass, bottle or flight. There is also a well-stocked bar that serves up traditional as well as specialty cocktails. The eclectic crowd includes all ages---singles mingle at the copper-topped bar while couples and groups take seats in the small room. Service is tidy and professional.
