While there's no exact English equivalent of the word "bodegón," it roughly translates to "tavern" or "wine cellar"⎯a place where neighbors and friends sip wine and share laughs over plates of Spanish tapas. So at El Bodegón, head chef Omar Miranda uses his decade and a half of restaurant experience to whip up a menu featuring dishes from the Iberian peninsula, such as small plates of cheese and charcuterie, pan-seared chicken, grilled skirt steak, and light, flaky mahi and grouper. He also stocks imported wines and beers to pair with his food, to ensure an authentic dining experience. Far more than a trendy tapas joint, El Bodegón prides itself on its warm, family atmosphere and wealth of potential material for a heartwarming sitcom, with Blance Perez and Ricardo Taulo serving as co-owners and managers. As guests dig into pots of seafood or chicken paella and savor imported Spanish olives and Manchego cheese, musicians set a relaxing mood by strumming harps and classical guitars, while clay tile floors, brick walls, and arch-bordered alcoves exude a charming, rustic air.
