At La Barraca Bar, guests bond over shareable small plates of authentic, artfully presented Spanish and Basque fare. Hot and cold tapas plates adorn the menu, which sings sea shanties of grilled mediterranean octopus dusted with spanish smoked paprika ($9.75), queso manchego imported from La Mancha ($7.75), and cuts of Angus filet mignon with mushrooms ($9.75). For heartier appetites, couples can share heaping bowlfuls of freshly made paellas, including the paella del monte, a traditional Valencia recipe that stirs chicken, rabbit, and snails into rice infused with saffron broth ($17.95/person). Selections from the dessert menu provide a sweet finish akin to running through the licorice ribbon at the end of the Candy Land marathon. Sweet-tooth satiators can sample a traditional serving of old-style crème caramel flan ($5), or seal meals with a slice of homemade Galician-style chocolate cake ($6).
