Is there any decent Spanish -not latin- food in NJ?

My dude an I went to Casa Mono (Batali's tapas joint near NYC union square) this week and, whilst reveling in the simple joys that good, authentic Spanish food can bring, we both wondered: Why can't we get this in NJ? We've been to the Ironbound district's most "lauded" (on CH and other boards) for distinctly medicore at best Spanish restaurants, and to Tapas de Espangna and found none of them are serving anything remotely near quality to the restaurants across the river (i.e Casa Mono, Boqueria). Does such a place exist in NJ or must we continue to make the trek to NY to find what truly eludes NJ?
