Lola Rojo, a tapas bar for the post-modern era, puts its emphasis on food & wine rather than San Miguels & sangria. It’s a deli as well as a restaurant, so customers have their tastebuds titillated by an attractive display of nibbles. Tapas clichés are a rarity. Yes, there are boquerones & paella, but you’re unlikely to see deep-fried squid rings or boiled mussels. The menu instead offers ‘excellent’ piquillo peppers with garlic prawns, ‘fab’ chorizo lollipops with quince aïoli, & mojama (smoked dried tuna) with a tomato dressing. For a proper Spanish experience, accompany your choices with a glass of fino or amontillado; otherwise, there’s plenty to interest wine enthusiasts on the all-Spanish wine list. Compared to other tapas bars, the bill may seem large, but for the quality of cooking, it’s fairly reasonable.
