By chance, I wandered into a new spanish place called Apamate on South Street between 16th and 17th. Ordered churros and a fabulous bitter, thick hot chocolate. Menu looked good - breakfast, salads, sandwiches - all with a spanish flair. There is a small shop that sells spanish foods.
The woman running the place couldn't have been more charming. Said they had just opened up yesterday.
Thought I'd share the news - eager to hear what folks think.
