THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Rioja Restaurant Review

: Not much has changed decoratively at Jack Jones' former Atlantique locale, save a paint job and Spanish-inspired art. The menu, though, is all about little Spanish-style bites. In place of seafood, Jones (also of Jack's) plates up red potato salad as well as zippy, flash-fried garlic-lemon shrimp wrapped in serrano ham with melon-fig relish. More substantial entrées range from chorizo and shrimp penne with peppers, spinach, tomatoes and smoky mozzarella to chicken- and ham-laced paella with lovely saffron rice. For dessert, there's a sweeter-than-sweet caramel baby banana sundae.
