In a bullfighting arena, an andanada is a section of cheap seats. That doesn’t mean that the food at Andanada is the Spanish equivalent of popcorn and stadium dogs, but the restaurant does encourage the kind of exuberance and camaraderie you might expect to find in the upper bleachers. Executive Chef Manuel Berganza fits right in with Andanada's accessible spirit, combining an unassailable claim to authenticity with a record of culinary artistry. Born in Gijón, Spain, he inherited his culinary sense from his mother and grandmother. His talents eventually took him to Madrid, where he helmed a pair of Michelin two-star-rated restaurants. In recent years, he has honed his craft on this side of the Atlantic, creating successful menus in Chicago and New York.
The tapas at Andanada reflect Berganza's roots and his ingenuity, offering fried calamari with squid-ink aioli sauce and roasted-pumpkin salad served aside a selection of Spanish cheeses and nuts. Entrees include oxtail burgers, sea bass with avocado tartare, and lamb loin served with oven-roasted onions in cabrales sauce. While they pass around bites of patatas bravas and garlic shrimp, diners can gaze into the bullfight mural spanning one wall—a surprisingly soothing piece of decor. Above orange lucite chairs and soft, quilted banquettes, an earth-toned matador and bull engage in a soulful stare down that looks as though it might end not in violence but in trotting off to share a trough of gazpacho.
