Taberna del Alabardero Restaurant Review

: There’s an old-fashioned elegance about this Spanish restaurant. One visit and you’ll understand what many Americans may not be aware of---that there’s a world of Spanish cooking beyond paella. Start with smoky peppers stuffed with codfish or almost-greaseless fried squid. Main courses might include roast pork with raisin sauce or beef with peppers and boiled potatoes. If you decide to have that paella, try the luxurious lobster version, and don’t miss the crema Catalana for dessert. Ask about dinners cooked by visiting chefs from Spain.
