Hot potato, the earliest dish designed to be passed, is nearly extinct due to the constant ravages of grade-school appetites. Revive shifting sustenance with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of tapas and wine at Patanegra.
Patanegra serves a seasonal menu of authentic Spanish tapas and hearty paellas served in a warm and sophisticated setting. Pair the classic patatas bravas, plucky potatoes swimming in a spicy tomato sauce ($5.50), with the more exotic codorniz en chocolate, semi-boneless quail smothered in chocolate sauce ($10.75). Seafaring appetites can choose from five paellas, including Patanegra's namesake rice dish dotted with seafood, Serrano ham, chorizo, and chicken ($20 per person). The perfect place for a first date or Gaudi fan-club meeting, Patanegra features an extensive wine list highlighting dozens of Spanish and Latin American varieties.
- This real-deal Spanish restaurant is a place to try foods you may have shied away from, such as marinated octopus or deep-fried anchovies. Wash it all down with something from the city's best Spanish wine list, featuring unusual Riojas and very meal-friendly sherries. – Oregonian
- Our server took the time to advise us on which tapas would work well together, and how much was too much. He also had great wine recommendations. – Sarah B., Yelp
