New tapas bar Laïola is delicious, says unspuncapricorn. Her favorite dish: Medjool dates stuffed with chorizo and wrapped in bacon, served on a wooden skewer. “The minute we finished them, and practically still chewing, we ordered a second skewer.” Also amazing: peaches a la plancha—perfectly ripe peach wedges wrapped in jamón and grilled. The charcuterie plate is equally delicious; particularly good is the wild boar salami. Blood sausage with chickpeas is tasty and “well integrated as a dish rather than just being boiled chick peas with a hunk of blood sausage on top,” says Amy G. And the fuet and boar chorizo is fantastic.
Laïola is great, agrees goingoutagain. The waitstaff is very knowledgeable, and will make excellent suggestions on Spanish wines. She digs the garlic flan, too.
