Sultry salsa beckons diners to the dance floor at this narrow, candlelit space. But the extensive menu of toothsome Spanish tapas is enough to keep you in your seat. Hot, crisp croquettes stuffed with diced ham pair well with an earthy red wine like the $7 Montecillio Rioja, plucked from the largely Iberian list. Graze on chorizo doused in sherry or the impeccable seafood--plump shrimp is flecked with garlic, and chewy curls of octopus are smothered in tomato sauce.
