La Gran Tapa Restaurant Review

: This financial district restaurant attracts ticket holders for concerts at nearby Copley Symphony Hall and fans of Spanish tapas. The kitchen turns out both traditional tapas of cured meats, cheeses and marinated seafood, and such substantial plates as paella Valenciana. Madrid is invoked with bullfight posters and other typical Iberian embellishments, and the wine list contains some nice, reasonably priced Spanish vintages. Friday nights boast a prix-fixe menu and Flamenco dancer show for another window into Spanish culture and fun food.
