I was visiting from out of town and tried this place on the recommendation of some chowhounders and really, really loved it. I went totally offal and had sweetbreads and blood sausage and tripe (3 different dishes all with distinctive sauces so nothing was alike) and then a caesar salad (mainly to feel virtuous after so much rich food). I ordered 2 glasses of the day's red wine special and when the second took too long to come, they comped me on it without my having complained or any such thing. The total was 32 for 4 tapas (fairly bountiful each) and the one glass of wine. No dish I had wasn't really delicious and none was more than ample in size. My out-of-towner view on this place is that it is really, really nice. I will go there the next time I have to be back in Washington in that area.
