El Rincon Espanol resembles the courtyard of a Spanish villa, with huge arched windows shedding rays on tile floors, hanging greenery, and framed prints of bullfighters. Whether seated at a wooden table around a pitcher of sangria or at the marble-topped bar with a margarita, guests can dig into Spanish and Latin American dishes such as sizzling paellas and Peruvian-style flank steak. The enormous menu holds options at just about every level of fanciness, from a plate of nachos supreme all the way up to the lobster thermidor, stuffed with shrimp, scallops, and crab. And then there are the tapas: 100 small plates of poultry, grilled meats, seafood, and veggies. Upstairs, the restaurant beckons revelers with weekly live entertainment. Named "The Cave" for its low lighting and status as a popular after-work hangout for spelunkers, the space hosts disco dance nights and, occasionally, live Salvadorian music.
