José Andrés keeps it fresh at his flagship tapas spots, done up with graphic art and clashing geometrics. Some plates on the large menu are pure satisfaction, such as a grilled, pressed Manchego-and-Ibérico-ham “Bikini” sandwich, named for the snacks sold by vendors around Barcelona’s Bikini Concert Hall. Others are tricked-out flavor bursts such as the Ferran Adrià–inspired liquid olives served on a spoon—a sensory experience that lingers long after the meal. Moderate.
Also great: Fried baby squid; apple-and-Manchego salad; chorizo with mashed potatoes; tomato bread; olive-oil ice cream with grapefruit granita.
