60. Shellfish Tapas at Tapas 210 A stunning decor and delicious eats make Tapas 210 worth the trip. Lush tropical greenery frames the many entryways for the brick patio, a huge sheltered area that's home to a delightful cross breeze. A wine room is a cozy nook for couples or a group interested in overtaking the farmhouse table.
Seafood is the star at this Spanish spot. Infused with tomato, garlic, and fresh herbs
thyme, rosemary, or basil announce the plate's arrival. Though the dish above -- the zarzuela de mariscos-- features clams, mussels, shrimp, and scallops, shellfish make an appearance throughout the menu.
Bocados of olives and Jamon Iberico tempt as snacks, while artichokes and mushrooms in white wine, or bone marrow with a beef cheek marmelade are favorites among the hot tapas. More ambitious diners might opt for paella, or better yet wait for Friday supper. The special is roast pork, served with white beans and garbanzos, it's among the most memorable pig roasts you've had lately.
