TRIED AND TRUE
A small slice of the Canary Islands is now nestled onto 17th Avenue SW. Las Canarias has made the move from the northwest corner of the city, bringing its Spanish ingredients—like the iberico and serrano hams, cheese and chorizo—and true tapas menu to the inner city.
Nibble on papas bravas, marinated olives or an assortment of montaditos—slices of bread topped with smoked oysters, chorizo, white anchovies or omelet—while awaiting a sizzling hot pan of paella made from Valencia rice and speckled with various combinations of seafood, chicken, beef, and chorizo. (Dig down to scrape up the deliciously crispy edges and bottom of the dish.)
Enjoy it all with some sangria or any of their selection of Spanish wines and pretend for a moment you’ve escaped to the Mediterranean (page 66).
